The method to improve quality of deposited copper films was discussed by using magnetron sputtering technique. The structure and texture of the film was characterized by using the SEM and X-ray diffraction analysis. The results showed that the quality of the film was improved by the reduction of three dimensional Ehrlich-Schwoebel barrier.
