ABSTRACT
The sound velocity and elastic modulus of a series of amorphous silicon oxynitride films produced by reactive sputtering have been measured as a function of nitrogen content. The acoustic pulses were generated and detected with ultrashort light pulses. The sound velocity was found to depend linearly on the nitrogen content.

    In this work we have systematically studied reactive nitrogen sputtering of Fe, Al and a composite Fe(Al) targets by varying the amount of reactive nitrogen. It was found that reactive nitrogen sputtering of a composite Fe(Al) having about 2% Al is completely different from pure Fe and pure Al....
