Course objectives
The course should provide the basic overview of all important methods used to deposit new materials in form of thin films and about methods to modify the surfaces. The student gets aware about principles and technologies of vacuum evaporation, sputtering methods, etching and surface modification as well as chemical vapour deposition or plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition. Additionally some of the processes will be shown in real work.
  • Overview of thin film deposition procedures
  • Evaporation
  • Molecular epitaxy
  • Chemical vapour depositon
  • Plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition
  • Physical vapour deposition
  • Magnetron sputtering
  • Reactive magnetron sputtering
  • D. Depla et al Reactive sputter depositon, Springer Series in Material Science 109 2008
Teaching methods
The course is based on lectures that provide a detailed overview of the subject. The block of two laboratory exercises is organized at the end of semester. In the frame of this laboratories the students will train two methods of thin film deposition, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition and magnetron sputtering.
