Unformatted text preview: kinetics follows a thermal activation energy (E act ) such as: j k ~ exp[ E act / k B T] where k B is Boltzmanns constant and T is the absolute temperature. The growth rate limitation due to the mass transport of chemicals to the growing film follows a diffusion equation such as: j t ~ D / T where D is a diffusivity Using these equations, analyze the data of Figure 37 on page 214, for the growth of polysilicon. Estimate the activation energy E act , and the effective diffusivity D. Discuss in your own words the sensitivity of the growth rate to temperature in the two regimes of: (a) reaction kinetics limited growth, and (b) mass transport limited growth. Give the temperature ranges for the two growth rate limitations.
