The features of the structure and phase composition formation in the Cu(25 nm)/Cr(25 nm) system during annealing in a vacuum over a wide temperature range are investigated. The development of redox processes, which can be effectively controlled by using additional ion-plasma treatment, is registered. The low-energy ion impact allows stabilizing the nanocrystalline structure by inhibiting the recrystallization processes and, thereby, to increase the thermal stability of the working film elements of micro- and nanoelectronic devices.

Key words: nanoscale system, ion-plasma treatment, annealing, oxide formation, microstructure.
