Abstract
(EN)
A three-dimensional (3D) memory device and a method of forming a three-dimensional memory device are disclosed. The 3D memory device includes a semiconductor substrate (330) and a plurality of through-substrate-trenches (450) penetrating the semiconductor substrate (330). The 3D memory device further includes a film stack (335f) disposed on the first surface (330f) of the semiconductor substrate (330) extending through the through-substrate-trenches (450) to the second surface (330b) of the semiconductor substrate (330), wherein the film stack (335f) includes alternating conductive layers (666) and dielectric layers (664). The 3D memory device also includes a staircase structure (872) formed at an edge of the film stack (335f).
