Nuclear reaction analysis of boron-nitride coatings
This paper contains the nuclear reaction analysis of boron nitride coatings deposited by PACVD (Plasma Assisted Chemical Vapour Deposition). Cross-sections were measured for alpha-particle energies between 4 and 5 MeV and a laboratory scattering angle of 135 at the 7 MV Van de Graaff accelerator of IRMM, using thin polyimide enriched boron-10 and natural boron targets. Smooth regions in the cross-section energy functions within the same energy window allow the determination of the film stoichiometry.
