Effect of grain orientations of Cu seed layers on the growth of <111>-oriented nanotwinned Cu.

ABSTRACT: We investigate the growth of Cu films on two different Cu seed layers: one with regular <111>-oriented grains and the other with very strong <111>-preferred orientation. It is found that densely-packed nanotwinned Cu (nt-Cu) can be grown by pulsed electroplating on the strong <111>-oriented Cu seed layer without a randomly-oriented transition layer between the nt-Cu and the Cu seed layer. The electroplated nt-Cu grow almost epitaxially on the seed layer and formed <111>-oriented columnar structures. However, with the regular <111>-oriented Cu seed, there is a randomly-oriented transition layer between the nt-Cu and the regular <111>-oriented Cu seed. The results indicate that the seed layer plays a crucial role on the regularity of <111>-oriented nanotwinned Cu.
