Electron beam damage to thin-film SiO2 was observed with a scanning Auger electron microscope. After a certain degree of electron beam exposure, changes in both the surface topography and chemical composition were investigated. The result suggested that there is a close relationship between the beam damage and the dissipation of incident energy in thin-film SiO 2.
