Abstract:

A collection of the physical properties of nichrome films is given. Graphs are presented giving property variations as functions of composition, deposition rate, method of deposition, substrate morphology etc. Failure mechanisms such as electromigration interdiffusion, corrosion and electrocorrosion are addressed and specific information is given with regard to real, possible and unlikely mechanisms. The report is intended to give a composite review of nichrome resistor technology from a process and reliability point of view.
