In-Situ Imaging of a Light-Induced Modification Process in Organo-Silica Films via Time-Domain Brillouin Scattering

Abstract : We applied time-domain Brillouin scattering (TDBS) for the characterization of porogen-based organosilicate glass (OGS) films deposited by spin-on-glass technology and cured under different conditions. Although the chemical composition and porosity measured by Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and ellipsometric porosimetry (EP) did not show significant differences between the films, remarkable differences between them were revealed by the temporal evolution of the Brillouin frequency (BF) shift of the probe light in the TDBS. The observed modification of the BF was a signature of the light-induced modification of the films in the process of the TDBS experiments. It correlated to the different amount of carbon residue in the samples, the use of ultraviolet (UV) femtosecond probe laser pulses in our optical setup, and their intensity. In fact, probe radiation with an optical wavelength of 356 nm appeared to be effective in removing carbon residue through single-photon absorption processes, while its two-photon absorption might have led to the breaking of Si-CH3 bonds in the OSG matrix. The quantum chemical calculations confirmed the latter possibility. This discovery demonstrates the possibility of local modifications of OSG films with a nanometric resolution via nonlinear optical processes, which could be important, among other applications, for the creation of active surface sites in the area-selective deposition of atomic layers.
