Al2O3/Cu composite films, useful for film resistors, were successfully fabricated at room temperature via aerosol deposition (AD). Microstructures of the Al2O3/Cu composite films were analyzed to understand the correlations between the surface morphologies and Al2O3/Cu ratio. A scratch test was carried out by gradually increasing the load applied to the Al2O3/Cu composite films. We also evaluated the adhesion ability by measuring the tensile strength between Al2O3/Cu composite films and Al2O3 substrate. The results confirmed that the adhesive properties of Al2O3/Cu composite films were strongly influenced by two adhesive mechanisms: mechanical interlocking and anchoring bonds between the films and Al2O3 substrate. When a powder mixture containing 50 wt% of Al2O3 and Cu was deposited on the substrate, high mechanical properties and suitable resistivity were simultaneously achieved at approximately 8.02 MPa and 85.2 mΩ cm, respectively due to effective mechanical interlocking and anchoring bonds. The results further suggest that room-temperature AD method is highly favorable to fabricate heterogeneous composite films for application to film resistors.
