Abstract:

The non-thermal activation of the oxidation of the Al111 surface has been investigated. It has been found that compared to thermally grown Al2O3 films of equivalent thickness a factor of 10-30 increase in the resistance of oxide films may be achieved by the use of non-thermal activation methods such as electron bombardment of adsorbed water, electron bombardment of adsorbed O2 and Al2O3 clusters, and by oxidation by O3.
