Diagnostic in TCOs CVD processes by IR pyrometry

Abstract : Infra red pyrometry is a sensitive, simple and low-cost technique commonly used for the measurement of the deposition temperature in CVD processes. We demonstrate in this work that this optical technique can be used as diagnostic tool to provide fruitful informations during the growth under atmospheric pressure of TiO2 films on various substrates chosen as an example of transparent oxide. Significant variations of the pyrometric signal were observed during the deposition of TiO2 thin films due to interferences in the growing film resulting from multi-reflections at the interfaces and scattering induced by the surface roughness. Modeling of the time dependence of the IR pyrometric signal allows simultaneously the determination of the layer thickness, the growth rate, surface roughness and refractive index of the thin films under the growth conditions. This diagnostic technique can be used for various transparent thin films grown on opaque substrates and is well adapted to control CVD processes operating either under atmospheric or low pressure and more generally any thermal treatment processes.
