Abstract

In this study, a pulsed magnetron sputtering was employed to synthesize TiN films. We deal with pulse parameters such as pulse frequency and duty cycle in argon - Nitrogen plasmas. Also, optical emission spectroscopy and energy resolved mass spectrometry as an integrated plasma diagnostics was employed during synthesis of thin films. The major emission lines and time-averaged ion energy distribution functions (IEDFs) corresponding to various titanium and gas discharge species are in situ surveyed in terms of frequency and duty cycles during deposition. The corresponding surface morphology was analyzed by atomic force microscopy (AFM).
