Abstract:Nickel thin films have been electrodeposited without the use of an additional
seed layer, on highly doped silicon wafers. These substrates conduct
sufficiently well to allow deposition using a peripherical electrical contact on
the wafer. Films 2 μm thick have been deposited using a nickel sulfamate
bath on both n+- and p+-type silicon wafers, where a series of trenches with
different widths had been previously etched by plasma etching. A new,
reliable and simple procedure based on the removal of the native oxide layer
is presented which allows uniform plating of patterned substrates.
