Operation parameters of magnetron diode for high-rate deposition of aluminum films

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


This article reports on the results of the detailed study of erosion of Al target in magnetron discharge plasma. It was demonstrated that the combination of middle-frequency (MF) and high impulse power (HiPIMS) power supply results in the significant increase of deposition rates of Al films by changing of sputtering yield. The MF pulse assists HiPIMS discharge to transit in a high power mode.
