Metallocenes as CVD Sources
Metallocenes have great potential as CVD sources BUT we don’t really know a great deal about the process. We know that ferrocene deposits clean iron lines when it adsorbs upright but not when it is lying down. Use in silicio methods to probe these interactions.
Use ab initio methods to model vibrational spectra of free compounds / ligands
MCp2, MCp2*, M(C5Cl5)2 [M=Fe, Ni, Co]
Use ab initio methods to model bonding orientations of adsorbed systems and predict orientations adopted upon adsorption.
