Abstract

The growth of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) films on Si by RF magnetron sputter deposition is studied. New method to control the process of film growth is proposed with use of RF bias on substrate. The structure of as-deposited films is studied as a function of experimental conditions. It has been shown that the optimal choice of RF bias parameters allows to fabricate highly ordered YSZ films with different textures at low temperatures of substrate.
