Abstract
Mechanisms have been investigated for increasing the abundance of atomic oxygen in the process environment during reactive low-voltage ion plating, a plasma-assisted evaporation process. Feeding several percent of nitrogen into the coating chamber led to enhanced oxidation and consequential reduction of residual optical absorption of ion-plated oxide films of tantala.
