    The reaction mechanisms in the Si|Ta|Cu and Si|TaC|Cumetallization systems are discussed based on the experimental results and the assessed ternary Si-Ta-Cu, Si-Ta-C and Ta-C-Cu phase diagrams. The ternary Si-Ta-N and Ta-N-Cu phase diagrams were also assessed in order to compare the thermodynamic properties of the TaC diffusion barriers to more widely investigated TaNx diffusion barriers. With the help of the sheet resistance measurements, RBS, XRD, SEM, and TEM the Ta barrier layer was observed to fail above 650 °C due to the formation of TaSi2. This was accompanied by the diffusion of Cu through the silicide layer and the resulting formation of Cu3Si precipitates. The stability of the TaC layers was better and the failure was observed above 750 °C clue to the formation of Cu3Si and TaSi2. However, interdiffusion of Cu and Si was observed already at lower temperatures due to the presence of pinholes in the TaC layer. This emphasises the importance of the fabrication method and the quality of the TaC layers.
