Title
(EN) REDUCING INTRALEVEL CAPACITANCE IN SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES
(FR) RÉDUCTION DE CAPACITÉ INTRANIVEAU DANS DES DISPOSITIFS SEMI-CONDUCTEURS
Abstract
(EN) Methods of forming air gaps in hole and trench structures are disclosed. The methods may be used to form buried voids, i.e., voids for which the top is below the top of the adjacent features. The methods include inhibition of the hole or trench structures and selective deposition at the top of the structure forming an air gap within the structures. In some embodiments, the methods are to reduce intra-level capacitance in semiconductor devices.
(FR) L’invention concerne des procédés consistant à former des entrefers dans des structures de trous et de tranchées. Les procédés peuvent servir à former des vides enterrés, c.-à-d., des vides dont le haut est en dessous du haut des attributs adjacents. Les procédés consistent en l’inhibition des structures de trous ou de tranchées et en le dépôt sélectif en haut de la structure formant un entrefer avec les structures. Selon des modes de réalisation, les procédés visent à réduire la capacité intraniveau dans des dispositifs semi-conducteurs.
