Title
(EN) DUAL GATE OXIDE PROCESS FOR UNIFORM OXIDE THICKNESS
(FR) PROCEDE DE PREPARATION D'OXYDE A GRILLE DOUBLE POUR UNE EPAISSEUR D'OXYDE UNIFORME
Abstract
(EN)
A process for forming dual gate oxides of improved oxide thickness uniformity for use in high performance DRAM systems or logic circuits, comprising:a) growing a sacrificial oxide layer on a substrate;b) implanting a dopant through the sacrificial oxide layer;c) implanting a first dosage of nitrogen ions in the absence of a photoresist to form a nitrided silicon layer; d) subjecting the substrate to a rapid thermal anneal for a sufficient time and at a sufficient temperature to allow nitrogen to diffuse to the silicon/oxide interface;e) masking the substrate with a photoresist to define the locations of the thin oxides of the dual gate oxide;f) implanting a second dosage of nitrogen ions through the photoresist;g) stripping the photoresist and the sacrificial oxide layers; and h) growing by oxidation gate oxide layers characterized by improved oxide thickness uniformity in the nitrogen ion implanted areas in the thin and thick oxides.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de formation d'oxydes à grille double à uniformité d'épaisseur d'oxyde améliorée s'utilisant dans des systèmes de mémoire vive dynamique (DRAM) haute performance ou des circuits logiques. Ce procédé consiste : a) à faire croître une couche d'oxyde sacrificiel sur un substrat, b) à implanter un dopant à travers la couche d'oxyde sacrificiel, c) à implanter un premier dosage d'ions d'azote en absence de photorésine afin de former une couche de silicium nitrurée, d) à soumettre le substrat à un recuit thermique rapide pendant un laps de temps suffisant et à une température suffisante afin de permettre à l'azote de se diffuser dans l'interface silicium/oxyde, e) à masquer le substrat avec une photorésine afin de définir les emplacement des oxydes fins de l'oxyde à grille double, f) à implanter une second dosage d'ions d'azote à travers la photorésine, g) à décaper la photorésine et les couches d'oxyde sacrificiel, et h) à faire croître par oxydation les couches d'oxyde de grille caractérisées par une uniformité d'épaisseur d'oxyde améliorée dans les zones implantées en ions d'azote dans les oxydes fins et épais.
