Abstract [en]

We have deposited Ti–Si–C thin films using high-power impulse magnetron sputtering (HIPIMS) from a Ti3SiC2 compound target. The as-deposited films were composite materials with TiC as the main crystalline constituent. X-ray diffraction and photoelectron spectroscopy indicated that they also contained amorphous SiC, and for films deposited on inclined substrates, crystalline Ti5Si3Cx. The film morphology was dense and flat, while films deposited with direct-current magnetron sputtering under comparable conditions were rough and porous. We show that, due to the high degree of ionization of the sputtered species obtained in HIPIMS, the film composition, in particular the C content, depends on substrate inclination angle and Ar process pressure.
