Influence of a static magnetic field on the formation of silicide phases in a Cu/Si(100) structure upon isothermal annealing


It is experimentally shown that the process of the solid-phase synthesis of copper silicide is sensitive to magnetic fields. Upon low-temperature vacuum annealing of a Cu/Si(100) thin-film structure, a static magnetic field with moderate strength stimulates the alloying of silicon in copper and suppresses synthesis of the Cu3Si phase.
