WO/2015/070356 APPARATUS AND PROCESS FOR ANNEALING OF ANTI-FINGERPRINT COATINGS||WO||21.05.2015|
||PCT/CH2014/000162||OERLIKON ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES AG||PLAGWITZ, Heiko|
The present invention addresses an in-situ annealing station for treating a substrate in an atmosphere of controlled water vapour pressure at a defined temperature. Such a station can be integrated as a process chamber into a multi chamber processing tool in which an anti- fingerprint coating process is being performed. The substrate is always under vacuum conditions until the annealing process has finished. Experimental data show that a significant reduction of the subsequent ex-situ curing duration can be achieved compared to Prior Art by introducing this in-situ treatment in water vapour immediately after the anti-fingerprint coating step. The invention further addresses a deposition process for a substrate to be annealed by exposing it to water-vapour under sub atmospheric pressure at a temperature of ca. 130°C for about 5s.
