Abstract

Amorphous-to-crystalline transformation of e-gun co-deposited CoSi 2 films occurs from 150 to 200 °C, as observed by in situ resistivity measurement and transmission electron microscopy. Resistivity changes abruptly from 1500 to 110 μΩ cm as the amorphous film transforms into circular crystallites that are circular before impingement occurs. A room-temperature resistivity of 30 μΩ cm was obtained by annealing the film to 500 °C.
