(FR) APPAREIL CONÇU POUR AMELIORER L'UNIFORMITE DE LA TEMPERATURE DE PLAQUETTES EN MATIERE DE TRAITEMENT HUMIDE FACE EN HAUT
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for controlling a substrate temperature during an electroless deposition process. The apparatus includes a deposition cell configured to support a substrate at a position above a fluid distribution member. A heated fluid is dispensed from the fluid diffusion member and contacts the backside of the substrate, thus heating the substrate. The heated fluid is dispensed from apertures configured to maintain a constant temperature across the substrate surface. The method includes flowing a heated fluid through a diffusion member against a backside of the substrate in a configuration that is configured to generate a constant processing temperature across the front side of the substrate.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil destiné à réguler la température d'un substrat lors d'un processus de dépôt électrocatalytique, qui comporte une cellule de dépôt conçue pour supporter un substrat dans une position au-dessus d'un élément de distribution de fluide. Un fluide chauffé est distribué à partir de l'élément de distribution fluide et vient en contact du côté arrière du substrat, chauffant par conséquent ledit substrat. Le fluide chauffé est distribué par des orifices conçus pour conserver une température constante sur toute la surface du substrat. Le procédé consiste à faire couler un fluide chauffé par le biais d'un élément de distribution contre un côté arrière du substrat dans une configuration destinée à produire une température de traitement constante sur le côté avant du substrat.
