Abstract

In this study, a high-throughput combinatorial approach to edge delamination test is proposed to map the failure of adhesion as a function of both temperature and film thickness in a single step. In this approach, a single specimen of a thin film bonded to a substrate with or-thogonal thickness and temperature gradients is subdivided into separate samples. This approach can be adopted to measure the adhesion reliability for films with thickness in the sub-micron range by the addition of an overlayer. Also, through the study of the surface energy effect on the adhe-sion of a film/substrate system, the variability of the ap-proach for constructing the reliability distribution of the adhesion (as a function of other material parameters) has been demonstrated.
