Tem Observations Of The Mechanism Of Delamination Of Chromium Films From Silicon Substrates, D. Goyal, Alexander H. King

Alexander H. King

We have observed the complete delamination of polycrystalline chromium films from single crystal silicon substrates during deposition due to the formation of high internal stresses. These intrinsic stresses can give rise to interfacial defects which assist in the separation of the film from the substrate. Stresses in the film are balanced by stresses in the substrate, which cause mechanical failure in the substrate near the interface. Extensive arrays of dislocations and cracking of the substrate have been observed. We find that the delamination of the films from the substrate is initiated by the formation of damage in the substrate, rather ...


Temperature And Suction Effects On The Instability Of An Infinite Swept Attachment Line, D. G. Lasseigne, T. L. Jackson, F. Q. Hu Jan 1992

Temperature And Suction Effects On The Instability Of An Infinite Swept Attachment Line, D. G. Lasseigne, T. L. Jackson, F. Q. Hu

Mathematics & Statistics Faculty Publications

It is known that the incompressible, infinite swept attachment line flow is unstable to streamwise disturbances that originate in the boundary layer when the cross-flow exceeds a critical magnitude. Furthermore, a small degree of suction at the surface has a significant stabilizing influence while a small degree of blowing has a considerable destabilizing influence. This paper investigates the stabilizing and destabilizing effects of, respectively, cooling or heating the plate and the competing or enhancing effects of suction or blowing. A nonorthogonal flow with respect to the attachment line is also considered by adding a component of shear to the mean ...
