Evaluating Baseline Deposition and Etch Recipes for Silicon Dioxide and Silicon Nitride using PECVD and RIE Tools:  Evaluating Baseline Deposition and Etch Recipes for Silicon Dioxide and Silicon Nitride using PECVD and RIE Tools Presented by Ayesha K. Denny NNIN RET GIFT Fellow Ga Tech MiRC Summer 2007 Research Objectives:  Research Objectives Verify process rates of standard recipes on deposition and etching tools. The tools utilized for deposition were: Unaxis PECVD, Plasma Therm PECVD (left chamber SiN, right chamber SiO2), and STS PECVD. Etching tools used were Plasma Therm RIE (right chamber) and the Vision Oxide (Advance Vac). Substances deposited and etched were silicon dioxide and silicon nitride. Evaluate deposition uniformity of the Plasma Therm PECVD. Comparing deposition samples before and after maintenance on the Unaxis PECVD. Research Procedure for Verifying Deposition Rates of Standard SiO2 and SiN Recipes :  Research Procedure for Verifying Deposition Rates of Standard SiO2 and SiN Recipes 10 minute cleaning process of each deposition tool prior to use. 1 minute seasoning of standard recipe on a “miscellaneous wafer” to create the desired environment in the chamber. Place wafer in the center of the chamber and run the standard recipe for SiO2 or SiNx using the appropriate tool. Measure film thickness of each wafer by completing a 5 point scan using the Woollam Ellipsometer and then determining the deposition rate and uniformity using the data obtained. Spin coat each wafer with HMDS and photoresist 1827 and then bake for 10 minutes at 110°C on a hotplate. Research Procedure con’t.:  Research Procedure con’t. Expose the mask pattern to each wafer using the MA6. Develop each exposed wafer using developer MF319. Evaluate sufficient development of each wafer by checking its profile using the P15 profilometer or Alpha Step 500. Research Procedure for Verifying Etch Rates of Standard SiO2 and SiN Recipes:  Research Procedure for Verifying Etch Rates of Standard SiO2 and SiN Recipes 10 minute cleaning process of each etching tool prior to use. 1 minute seasoning of standard recipe on a “miscellaneous wafer” to create the desired environment in the chamber. Place the wafer in the center of the chamber for the Adv. Vac or the front right position of the PT RIE (for consistency purposes only), and run the standard etching recipe for the specified time using the appropriate etching tool. Obtain a post-etch profile of each wafer using P15 Profilometer or the Alpha Step 500 after stripping the sample of its photoresist using 1165 Remover and use the data obtained to determine the etch rate for each process. Research Procedure for Uniformity Evaluation Using the Plasma Therm PECVD:  Research Procedure for Uniformity Evaluation Using the Plasma Therm PECVD 10 minute cleaning process of Plasma Therm PECVD prior to use. Run a 1 minute seasoning deposition on a “miscellaneous wafer” to create the desired environment in the chamber. Place wafers in the chamber, making note of each wafer’s position. Run the standard silicon dioxide deposition recipe for 20 minutes on the wafers. Measure film thickness of each wafer by completing a 5 point scan using the Woollam Ellipsometer and then determining the deposition and uniformity rate using the data obtained.

Silicon dioxide deposition rates were more consistent than silicon nitride depositions using the STS PECVD. Deposition rates for silicon dioxide and silicon nitride were more consistent using the Plasma Therm PECVD. Depositions rates are higher in the front of the chamber for the Plasma Therm PECVD. After maintenance (thorough cleansing) showed a 1% increase in uniformity. Etch rates for silicon dioxide using the Plasma Therm RIE varied but fell within the projected range most of the time. Etch rates using the Advanced Vac were inconclusive due to insufficient data (tool was down).
