Title
(EN) HIGH SELECTIVITY ETCHING PROCESS FOR OXIDES
(FR) PROCEDE DE GRAVURE HAUTEMENT SELECTIVE POUR OXYDES
Abstract
(EN) A process for etching oxides having different densities which is not only highly selective, but which also produces uniform etches is provided and includes the steps of providing an oxide layer on a surface of a substrate, exposing the oxide layer to a liquid comprising a halide-containing species, and exposing the oxide layer to a gas phase comprising a halide-containing species. The process desirably is used to selectively etch a substrate surface in which the surface of the substrate includes on a first portion thereof a first silicon oxide (22) and on a second portion thereof a second silicon oxide, with the first silicon oxide (22) being relatively more dense than the second silicon oxide, such as, for example, a process which forms a capacitor storage cell on a semiconductor substrate.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant la gravure d'oxydes de différentes densités, lequel procédé n'est pas seulement hautement sélectif, mais produit des gravures uniformes et rassemble plusieurs opérations. Ce procédé consiste à prendre une couche d'oxyde en surface d'un substrat, à exposer la couche d'oxyde à un liquide comprenant une espèce contenant une espèce halogénée, puis à exposer la couche d'oxyde à une phase gazeuse contenant une espèce halogénée. Ce procédé convient de préférence à la gravure sélective d'une surface de substrat lorsqu'une première partie de la surface du substrat comprend un premier oxyde de silicium (22) et qu'une seconde partie contient un second oxyde de silicium, le premier oxyde de silicium (22) étant relativement plus dense que le second oxyde de silicium, notamment dans un processus de formation d'une cellule de mémoire capacitive sur un substrat de semi-conducteur.
