Title
(EN) REACTION CHAMBER
(FR) CHAMBRE DE RÉACTION
Abstract
(EN)
A reaction chamber having a reaction spaced defined therein, wherein the reaction space is tunable to produce substantially stable and laminar flow of gases through the reaction space. The substantially stable and laminar flow is configured to improve the uniformity of deposition on substrates being processed within the reaction chamber to provide a predictable deposition profile.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une chambre de réaction présentant un espace de réaction défini à l'intérieur, l'espace de réaction étant réglable pour produire un flux de gaz sensiblement stable et laminaire dans l'espace de réaction. Le flux sensiblement stable et laminaire est conçu pour améliorer l'uniformité de dépôt sur des substrats traités dans la chambre de réaction afin de produire un profil de dépôt prévisible.
