RAPID Reactive Atmospheric Plasma processIng eDucation network Marie-Curie Initial Training Network (MC-ITN): ESR 7 Control of gas permeation properties of silica layers synthesized by high current DBD process
Exploration of the interaction of organic and inorganic multi-layer stacks wherein the (in) organic layers are deposited by AP plasma using an organo- silicon air-like gas mixture. Such an approach is essential to control gas permeation at high deposition rate and to achieve for instance a strong moisture barrier layer to protect moisture sensitive flexible devices from degradation.
A key aspect to achieve good oxygen and moisture permeation rates in silica layers is to control the interaction of the plasma with the polymer substrate. Therefore nucleation and film morphology (SE, AR-XPS, FTIR-ATR and SEM) will be explored as a function of plasma deposition conditions (year 1, 2) under the AP-PECVD conditions. In addition, the silica layers will be characterized on gas permeation and results will be assessed with EP studies carried out in ESR-6 (year 2). Different strategies to control pore size will be investigated (year 3), including deposition of multi-layered or hybrid CVD / ALD layer structures to achieve high deposition rates.
