Driving Force in Diffusion and Redistribution of Reducing Agents During Redox Reaction on the Surface of CoFeB Film


Diffusion and redistribution of constituent elements on the CoFeB surface after natural oxidation and annealing were investigated by means of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy with argon beam sputtering. Boron and iron atoms were found to redistribute into the ~3 nm-thick oxidized surface by the natural oxidation even at room temperature. After annealing up… (More)
