- Cubic boron nitride (c-BN) films were deposited by an unbalanced magnetron sputtering method. A (100) Si wafer with a nanocrystalline diamond thin film as a surface coating layer or that without it was used as a substrate. The target power was varied from 100 to 400 W. A boron nitride target was used, which was connected to a radio frequency power supply. High frequency power connected to a substrate holder was used for self-biasing. The deposition pressure was 0.27 MPa with a flow of Ar (18 sccm) - N2 (2 sccm) mixed gas. The existence of threshold bias voltages for c-BN formation and resputtering were observed irrespective of target power. The bias voltage window for c-BN formation broadened with increased target power. The deposition rate decreased with enhanced bias voltage and decreased target power. Residual stresses of the films did not vary noticeably with target power within the target power range of c-BN formation. A parameter space for c-BN formation according to the target power and the bias voltage, as two variables, was suggested.
