Abstract

Nickel and palladium silicide films have been used in an evaluation of MeV 4He backscattering, the Read X-ray camera and the Seemann-Bohlin X-ray diffractometer. Identical samples of untextured, textured and epitaxial crystalline layers have been studied by all three techniques. Backscattering spectrometry techniques give concentration ratios and and silicide layer thicknesses. Glancing angle X-ray diffraction is required for positive phase identification and structural analysis. The Seemann-Bohlin diffractometer is capable of quantitative structural analysis; however, the Read camera is adequate in phase identification of silicide formation. © 1974.
