Abstract [en]

Low- and medium-energy ion scattering are powerful techniques to perform high-resolution depth profiling with sub-nanometer resolution. Typically, ions with primary energies between a few keV and a few hundred keV are used to probe the sample and backscattered projectiles are detected. To obtain highly accurate composition profiles, knowledge on physical processes governing ion-matter interaction is crucial. Apart from the main (back-)scattering process, which yields a detectable signal, the projectile loses energy in interactions with both electrons and nuclei (stopping) along its path in matter. In all these interactions, also the charge state of the probing particle can be altered. Information on this multitude of interaction mechanisms can be deduced from two different experimental approaches: either in backscattering or transmission geometry. Especially towards lower primary energies, available experimental data are found more scarce. This situation is particularly true for more complex targets, i.e. reactive transition metals and their compounds. This absence of quantitative information on energy loss or charge exchange processes hampers in many cases the quality of characterization despite the high technological relevance of these materials.

To contribute to an improvement of this status quo, this thesis focuses on (i) an analysis of sources of uncertainties in the evaluation of electronic energy loss, (ii) experiments to obtain stopping data for protons and He ions in different reactive samples and (iii) studies of charge exchange between projectile and target.

The first part presents a discussion of two possible sources of systematic errors, i.e. the composition of the investigated sample (thin films of the reactive transition metals often have low Z impurities like H, C, N and O), and deficiencies in the available models for the scattering potential. Concerning impurities in the films, it is shown that a correction according to Bragg's rule yields good agreement with data obtained from clean samples, even for energies down to a few keV, as long as the concentration levels of the impurities are low. In the second part experimentally deduced electronic energy loss data for transition metal nitrides as well as self-supporting Au and W-foils are presented. In the latter study a comparative approach using backscattering and transmission experiments is performed with measurements in both geometries conducted on the same sample, and in the same scattering chamber with only the position of the detector varied. In the final section the influence of surface oxygen on the energy spectra of backscattered ions at primary energies ≤ 5 keV is investigated. Depending on the host material O is found to enhance or suppress sub-surface signals. Additionally, also the change in neutralization efficiency for surface oxides in comparison to clean metal surfaces is studied for single crystalline Al(111) and Ta(111).
