Term (Index) Definition
reactive evaporation  same concept as reactive sputtering.
evaporation  common technique used to deposit thin film materials; material to be deposited is heated in vacuum, 10-6 Torr - 10-7 Torr range, until it melts and starts evaporating; vapor of material is condensing on the cooler substrate exposed to the vapor; common technique in thin film metal deposition; not suitable for high melting point materials; one of the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) methods of thin film formation.
reactive sputtering  sputter deposition process in which species sputtered off the target material are chemically reacting with other species in the gas mixture to form a compound to be deposited; e.g. sputtering of Si in plasma containing oxygen will result in deposition of SiO2.
