ABSTRACT
We have investigated reactively sputtered films of RuO2 for possible application in very large scale integrated circuits. Sputtering yields stoichiometric ruthenium dioxide in a large window of oxygen pressures and the films are reasonably low stressed in the 10-9 dyn cm-2 range. The resistivity of as deposited films is 40 μΩ cm. The films are excellent barriers against interdiffusion of Si and Al.
