For the photothermal characterization of Cu-C interface systems modulated IR radiometry has been applied. Based on two-layer model approximations, the measured effective thermal depth profiles are interpreted in the range of the intermediate modulation frequencies. The obtained thermal parameters are correlated with the mechanical adhesion strength between Cu film and C substrate, in order to identify film deposition conditions and substrate cleaning procedures contributing to good mechanical bonding and reduced thermal contact resistances.
