Title (EN) INTEGRATED ATOMIC LAYER PASSIVATION IN TCP ETCH CHAMBER AND IN-SITU ETCH-ALP METHOD
(FR) PASSIVATION DE COUCHE ATOMIQUE INTÉGRÉE DANS UNE CHAMBRE DE GRAVURE AU TCP ET PROCÉDÉ DE GRAVURE IN SITU PAR ALP
Abstract:
(EN) A method for etching a substrate includes performing, in a plasma chamber, a first etch of a substrate material using a plasma etch process. The first etch forms features to a first depth in the material. Following the first etch, the method includes performing, in the plasma chamber without removing the substrate from the chamber, an atomic layer passivation (ALP) process to deposit a conformal film of passivation over the mask and the features formed during the first etch. The ALP process uses a vapor from a liquid precursor to form passivation over the features and the mask. The method further includes performing, in the plasma chamber, a second etch of the material using the plasma etch process. The conformal film of passivation is configured to protect the mask and sidewalls of the features during the second etch. A plasma processing system also is described.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de gravure d'un substrat comprenant la réalisation, dans une chambre à plasma, d'une première gravure d'un matériau de substrat selon un procédé de gravure au plasma. La première gravure forme des caractéristiques jusqu'à une première profondeur dans le matériau. Après la première gravure, le procédé consiste à réaliser, dans la chambre à plasma sans retirer le substrat de la chambre, un procédé de passivation de couche atomique (ALP) permettant de déposer un film conforme de passivation sur le masque et sur les caractéristiques formées pendant la première gravure. Le procédé ALP utilise une vapeur provenant d'un précurseur liquide pour effectuer une passivation sur les caractéristiques et sur le masque. Le procédé consiste en outre à effectuer, dans la chambre à plasma, une seconde gravure du matériau selon le procédé de gravure au plasma. Le film conforme de passivation est conçu pour protéger le masque et les parois latérales des éléments pendant la seconde gravure. L'invention concerne également un système de traitement au plasma.
