    By using the SPring-8 beam line, we have studied the dependence of the chemical structure and uniformity of three kinds of approximately 1nm-thick silicon oxide films formed by using atomic oxygen at 300°C on the oxidation process. Among the SiO 2 Si interfaces formed by several oxidation methods using atomic oxygen, the uniformity was strongly dependent on the oxidation process and the highest uniformity was obtained with the krypton-mixed oxygen plasma oxidation, while the abruptness of the compositional transition layer was weakly dependent on the oxidation process.
