Selective Metallization by Chemical Vapor Deposition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

101 Scopus citations


The selective growth of metal films by chemical vapor deposition processes is reviewed. A working definition of selectivity, based on the relative rates of nucleation on the growth and nongrowth surfaces, is proposed. After consideration of the factors that effect nucleation and a brief description of the methods used to measure selectivity, a review of the selective depositions of tungsten, copper, and aluminum will be presented.
