Fig 5: ALD thickness dependence and layer etch. Using profiled anisotropic etching of the SiO2 (blue) and SiN (green), the resulting hole shape can be determined using varying ALD thicknesses. The best shape is found at a 23.5 nm ALD value, using a Semulator 3D visibility etch model that was previously validated again actual etch results.

Accelerating the Development of Dry Etch Processes during Feature Dependent Etch

In dry etching, the trajectory of accelerated ions is non-uniform and non-vertical, due to collisions with gas molecules and other random thermal effects (Figure 1). This has an impact on […]
