Notes

SiO2 substrates cleaned with acetone, alcohol, DI rinse, and nitrogen dry.

Ta and Ti films can rapidly oxidize in air perhaps due to PEALD Ta and Ti not being fully dense.

Calculates increase in via resistance for increasing liner thickness.

I am sure there are papers I have not found. I am sure there is an occasional typo or omission in the database entries. I have hundreds of pre-2009 papers yet to add. As a result, the information provided is not perfect and not complete. Don't blame Plasma-ALD-Guy if the use of information on this site does not work out for you.
