Title (EN) METHOD FOR ETCHING A SILICON-CONTAINING SUBSTRATE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE GRAVURE D'UN SUBSTRAT CONTENANT DU SILICIUM
Abstract:
(EN) Techniques herein provide a chamber and substrate cleaning solution for etching and removing byproducts between separate etching steps. Such techniques include using a cleaning step based on fluorine chemistry, which is executed in between separate etch steps or divided etch steps. Such a technique can be executed in situ for improved efficiency. Other benefits include increasing etching depth/aspect ratios, and preventing post-etching defects including physical contact with neighboring gates, etc. Techniques herein are especially beneficial when applied to relatively small feature openings.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques qui utilisent une solution de nettoyage de chambre et de substrat pour graver et éliminer des sous-produits entre des étapes de gravure. De telles techniques consistent à utiliser une étape de nettoyage faisant appel à la chimie du fluor, qui est exécutée entre des étapes de gravure séparées ou des étapes de gravure divisées. Une telle technique peut être mise en œuvre in situ pour une efficacité améliorée. D'autres avantages comprennent l'augmentation de la profondeur/de rapports de forme de gravure, et la prévention de défauts post-gravure y compris un contact physique avec des grilles voisines, etc. Les techniques décrites dans la description sont particulièrement bénéfiques lorsqu'elles sont appliquées à des ouvertures caractéristiques relativement petites.
