Title
(EN) LINE BENDING CONTROL FOR MEMORY APPLICATIONS
(FR) COMMANDE DE COURBURE DE LIGNE POUR DES APPLICATIONS DE MÉMOIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for reducing bending of word lines in a memory cell includes a) providing a substrate including a plurality of word lines arranged adjacent to one another and above a plurality of transistors; b) depositing a layer of film on the plurality of word lines using a deposition process; c) after depositing the layer of film, measuring word line bending; d) comparing the word line bending to a predetermined range; e) based on the word line bending, adjusting at least one of nucleation delay and grain size of the deposition process; and f) repeating b) to e) one or more times using one or more substrates, respectively, until the word line bending is within the predetermined range.
