Calculation of the concentration profile of copper in the TiN/CoSi2/Si system during thermal heating


The results of the calculation of concentration profiles of copper in the system Cu/TiN/CoSi@2/Si-substrate under thermal heating to 600°C are presented. Possible diffusion mechanisms of Cu in the TiN and CoSi2 films and bulk Si are considered.
