Abstract: Finaly dispersed, stable Al-oxide particles were produced in Al films on Si substrates by oxygen ion implantation. A laser reflow technique was employed to vary the grain structure of some of the films. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used to characterize the oxide particles and the grain size in the films, and a wafer curvature technique was employed to study the influence of microstructure on the deformation properties as a function of temperature. For coarse grained laser reflowed films, ion implantation increased the strength considerably, both in compression and in tension. Weak beam TEM techniques showed that the strengthening is most likely caused by attractive interactions between dislocation and particles. As-deposited and ion implanted films showed a stable grain size of only 0.35 µm after annealing, which caused significant softening to occur in compression, especially at high temperature. However these films showed very high stresses in tension at temperatures below 130°C. In these films the presence of the oxide particles stabilizes the small grain size and this causes a wekening effect which can be attributed to diffusion controlled grain boundary relaxation mechanisms. The high tensile stresses at temperatures below 130°C can be explained by direct and indirect particle strengthening.
