Effect of Pressure and Temperature

Posted by mark00 On March - 6 - 2010

Two factors that greatly affect the coating quality during deposition are pressure and temperature. The first published work in this area was carried out by Movchan and Demchishin and is known as the Structure Zone Model (SZM). This model was subsequently built upon by other researchers. The present day model is shown below. [CMN V2, Issue 3 1992].
