Abstract: Thin films of compositions Mo,,Si,, and Mo,,Si,, were co-sputtered onto p-type silicon substrates and annealed using a rapid thermal annealing system. The spectroscopic ellipsometric studies were performed on samples which crystallized into the most stable MoSi, tetragonal phase. The Bruggeman effective medium theory in a multiphase-multilayer mode was used to determine the microstructural details of these films. The microstructural modelling results indicated varied fractions of silicon and voids randomly mixed in the matrix of MoSi a. It was also observed that the composition of the SiO,overlayeralso varied with changes in the annealing temperature and was found to depend on the starting composition.
