Title
(EN) THROUGHPUT IMPROVEMENT WITH INTERVAL CONDITIONING PURGING
(FR) AMÉLIORATION DE CAPACITÉ DE PRODUCTION AVEC UNE PURGE DE CONDITIONNEMENT PAR INTERVALLES
Abstract
(EN)
Processing methods and apparatus for increasing a reaction chamber batch size. Such a method of processing deposition substrates (e.g., wafers), involves conducting a deposition on a first portion of a batch of deposition wafers in a reaction chamber, conducting an interval conditioning reaction chamber purge to remove defects generated by the wafer processing from the reaction chamber; and following the interval conditioning mid-batch reaction chamber purge, conducting the deposition on another portion of the batch of wafers in the reaction chamber. The interval conditioning reaction chamber purge is conducted prior to exceeding a baseline for acceptable defect (e.g., particle) generation in the chamber and is performed while no wafers are positioned in the reaction chamber.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil de traitement permettant d'augmenter une taille de lot en chambre de réaction. Un tel procédé de traitement de substrats (par exemple des tranches) sur lesquels un dépôt doit être effectué comprend la mise en œuvre d'un dépôt sur une première partie d'un lot de tranches sur lesquelles un dépôt doit être effectué dans une chambre de réaction, la mise en œuvre d'une purge de la chambre de réaction de conditionnement par intervalles pour éliminer des défauts produits par le traitement de tranches de la chambre de réaction ; et à la suite de la purge de la chambre de réaction à mi-lot de conditionnement par intervalles, la mise en œuvre du dépôt sur une autre partie du lot de tranches dans la chambre de réaction. La purge de la chambre de réaction de conditionnement par intervalles est mise en œuvre avant le dépassement d'une ligne de base pour une production de défaut (par exemple une particule) acceptable dans la chambre et est effectuée alors qu'aucune tranche n'est disposée dans la chambre de réaction.
