How Does Annealing Time Change

Good Essays
Electronic materials is very useful in today 's world, they can be used almost in all field. There are a lot of electronic materials produced every day, like semiconductor, Piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials, magnetic material etc. This lab is more concentrate on the electronic resistivity with the changing of annealing time. And XRD can help people figure out the grain size of the sample, and find the rule of the electronic resistivity with the changing of annealing time.
Introduction
The experiment is to determine the resistant of the electronic materials with the annealing time change, and the microstructure of the materials. It is easy to understand how to use AFM and Four Probe by studying the experiment. The electrical resistivity

Put the sample under the probes and press the probes until they touch the surface of the sample. Set the initial current as 10mA, test the sample and read the result on the screen. Repeat the same procedure but increase 10mA after each test until the current reaches 100mA. Record all the result during the test.
Annealing of Cu thin films The purpose of annealing the sample is to increase the grain size of the sample. The annealing temperature is 300℃, 4 groups of samples will leave in the annealing chamber for 6, 12, 24 and 48 hours. And the annealing must be in Argon or Nitrogen gas atmosphere at 1 atm because the samples will be oxidized in air.
XRD
XRD is to determine the microstructure of the samples. The structure information can be determined by analyzing the peak of diffraction angle 2θ degree. X-ray diffractometers consist of three basic elements: an X-ray tube, a sample holder, and an X-ray detector. The different annealing time will cause different microstructure, and people can summarize the change rule of the annealing time vs. structure.

In order to ensure precision of experimental results. We have to put our samples in Argon gas.
Question 3: Yes, they do. The bulk Cu has lower electrical resistivity than Si/SiO2/Cu sample. Because they are all thin film, so the resistivity is mainly governed by the grain size of the film.
Question 4: Our data is totally different with other group, because our samples are non-annealing. And the thickness of our group is around 1.61um, group 3 is around 1.5um, and group 1 is about 1.22um. Also, the resistivity is different with other groups, the resistivity of our group is 0.15, but group 3 and 4 are much smaller than us.

Engineering problem: I would like to use electrodeposition, because this mothed is usually used to grow copper metal interconnect film. Also the products are high quality. And the grain size for Cu does not matter the electrodeposition, because if we use this way to produce the thin film, the copper is not solid, there is no grain in copper. And from that table, we found the lowest resistivity for electrodeposition is

    2 A &B) due to the long pulse duration of the original electron pulses (~500 fs) respect to the gating window (~30fs). Therefore, we will use the same principle of the electron-photon coupling cross-correlation measurement to temporally characterize the gated electron pulse as explained earlier, utilizing another laser (NIR) pulse. The principle of this experiment is illustrated in Fig. 3A, which can be explained as follows; the gating optical pulse will maintain at τ_Vis=0fs to generate the gated electron pulse. The gated electrons are coupled with another laser pulse (NIR pulse (~1.4 mJ/cm2)).…

    Schematic of the physical model for the susceptibility of hot cracking during copper GTA welding. (I). Free crystalline region The actual line of S-L is lower compared with its corresponding theoretical line because of the influence of under cooling and low-melting eutectic. The α-Cu is crystallized from the liquids when the welding pool cools down the actual line of S-L. In this region, the size of α-Cu is smaller and the quantity of α-Cu is fewer.…

    The ferric-TPTZ reagent was prepared by mixing 300 mM acetate buffer, pH 3.6, 10 mM TPTZ in 40 mM HCl and 20 mM FeCl3.6H2O in the ratio of 10:1:1 (v/v/v). The FRAP reagent was freshly prepared before each experiment. Briefly, 60 µL of different concentrations of the reference standard or the sample extractwere mixed with 1000 µL FRAP reagent and incubated at 37oC for the duration of the reaction. The absorbance readings were taken at 593 nm at 30 min. Increasing absorbance of the reaction mixture indicates an increase of reduction capability.…

    A series of standard solutions of concentrations in the range of 3-60µg/mL were obtained by further dilution of the aliquots with methanol. All the solutions were stored at -20oC and were equilibrated to room temperature prior to use. To prepare the standard calibration samples, 50µL of standard solution and 100µL of Acetonitrile were added to 100µL of blank plasma. The mixture was vortex-mixed for 10 min, followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 15 min. 20µLof the supernatant was taken, then filtered through 0.22µm size syringe filter, and injected in HPLC for analysis.…

    The Thin layer chromatography plate shown in Figure 3 is used to identify compounds as well as determine their purity [9]. The crude product spot moved the same distance as the 2-NBB spot. The 4-NBB spot did not appear on the plate, indicating a low concentration of the substance. 4-NBB should diffuse farther up the TLC plate than 2-NBB due to the difference in polarity.…

    In case of no filler materials it has low matrix continuity between matrix and fibre with low capacity of absorption, which results in micro crack initiation which leads to failure so value was less, Then material D with 2% silicon carbide and activated charcoal shows 0.110 Kgm because silicon carbide has high hardness and excellent thermal shock resistance, but activated charcoal reacted with that lead to decrease its impact strength and its value is less than material E. The Test results shows that by adding mica to the material we can get better impact strength. From this we came to a conclusion that we should not add silicon carbide and activated charcoal. By adding mica to the material we can increase the impact…

    Since too much solvent was added, p-hydroxybenzoic pure acid stayed dissolved in the solution, eventually the percentage recovered was lower than it should be. A high percentage yield is considered between 70-80% of the purified product, in order to obtain this results we need to use little solvent as possible. On the other hand another factor that affected the results obtained was that we used a folded paper instead of fluted filter paper. A fluted filter paper is preferred over a folded filter paper because it has more surface area and also helps the filtration to take place faster. Since we did not use the fluted filter paper during the filtration some solvent evaporated resulting in premature crystallization and the solute stayed on the filter paper along with the impurities, making the percent recovered lower.…
