Paper Abstract

Depth profiling using Dynamic Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy through multilayer coatings on fused silica substrates has revealed the effect of increasing the number of layers in the stack. Results are presented for both spin and dip coated multilayers and a significant difference in the interfacial boundary is seen between the two processes. Individual layer thicknesses were estimated using this technique and compared to values gained from UV-Visible spectroscopy. Depth profiling using SNMS of a thick 2-layer system also revealed the thickness of the layers and an indication of the intermixing between them. These measurements agreed well with UV-Vis data. A comparison between these depth-profiling techniques and previous work using AES/XPS depth profiling is discussed.
