This book, entitled Thin Films on Glass, is one of a series reporting on research and development activities on products and processes conducted by the Schott Group. The scientifically founded development of new products and technical pro cesses has traditionally been of vital importance to Schott and has always been performed on a scale determined by the prospects for application of our special glasses. Since the reconstruction of the Schott Glaswerke in Mainz, the scale has increased enormously. The range of expert knowledge required could never have been supplied by Schott alone. It is also a tradition in our company to cultivate collaboration with customers, universities, and research institutes. Publications in numerous technical journals, which since 1969 we have edited to a regular schedule as Forschungsberichte - 'research reports' - describe the results of these cooperations. They contain up-to-date infor mation on various topics for the expert but are not suited as survey material for those whose standpoint is more remote. This is the point where we would like to place our series, to stimulate the exchange of thoughts, so that we can consider from different points of view the possibilities offered by those incredibly versatile materials, glass and glass ceramics. We would like to share the knowledge won through our research and development at Schott in cooperation with the users of our materials with scientists and engineers, interested customers and friends, and with the employees of our firm.

This comprehensive monograph summarizes the 30-year studies of borophosphosilicate glass (BPSG) thin film used in electronic technologies, including the authors personal experience with the film deposition, characterization, and implementation in microelectronic technology. The main core of the monograph is the interrelation of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) kinetic features, thin film material properties, and electronic device technology aspects. Part one of the monograph is devoted to the analysis of thin film synthesis, such as: CVD methodology and BPSG film processes, silicon dioxide and glass film growth kinetics, CVD step coverage and gap-fill features. Part two of the book is a description of BPSG film properties, film structure, glass flow capability, BPSG film-moisture interaction and the film defect formation phenomenon. A number of experimental data are presented and discussed in detail.

A study of substrate cleaning methods for thin film evaporations was made. The study included investigation of ultrasonic cleaning, effects of water impurities, and tests for substrate cleanliness. Evaluation of cleaning procedures included the use of the electron microscope. The cleaning procedures developed during this study were tested on glass substrates only but they should be useful for a wide variety of other materials. Metzger's method forms the basis for the procedures developed in this study. This method uses a detergent solution in an ultrasonic cleaner. The final rinse is made in conductivity water. Since production of conductivity water is tedious and the necessary equipment was not available during this study, triple distilled water was used with some degree of success. The impurities in commercial distilled water produced stains on the substrate during the oven drying process. A method of forced gas blowing was devised to prevent water from drying on the substrate, thus eliminating the stain. The combination of ultrasonic cleaning, distilled water rinse, and forced gas blowing, produced substrates with undetectable contamination. (Author).

The thin metal layer that makes the difference between a mirror and a simple sheet of glass is an optical coating. But, optical coatings are used in many more applications-a particularly important current one being the s
