  10. Reactor Features (1) • New Inductively Coupled Plasma source with hot walls to reduce polymer condensation and to enhance plasma cleaning. It produces High Density Plasma in a wide working pressure range (5 to 100 mT) for fast etching of up to Ø200 mm wafers, • Helium assisted heat exchange between cathode, shuttle and wafer with mechanical clamping to maintain wafer temperature below100°C, Numerous plasma modes accessible in the same process: • Inductively Coupled Plasma + RF biasing • Reactive Ion Etching • Inductively Coupled Plasma for low damage etching.

  11. Reactor Features (2) • Reactor with hot walls enables: • Highly selective processes, • Low contamination of the process chamber. • Low plasma potential (< 25 Volts) and automatic self bias regulation giving rise to precise control of ion energy enables (≤ 40 eV): • Low damage etching with no RF biasing, • Isotropic etching with low RF biasing, • Anisotropic etching with high RF biasing.

Goal: Ensure wafer cooling Altymid Ring Wafer Work Area Pression He en fonction du débit - He Pressure Versus He Flow Rate - 15 Graphite Plate 10 Pression He (Torrs) - He Pressure - O’ Ring 5 0 0 Base Plate 0 0 5 10 15 20 25 Débit He - He Flow Rate - (sccm) He Pressure vs He Flow Rate Example of Shuttle The shuttles are designed according to wafer size, number of wafers and process recipes for optimum process results. The use of dedicated shuttles according to process strongly reduces the cross contamination.

  25. A CCD camera and laser diode, in the same measuring head, enables simultaneous visualization of the die surface and the laser beam impact on it. A laser spot, of diameter 20 µm, facilitates the record of interference signals. Precise Monitoring The latest submicron technology needs precise monitoring: • Automatic endpoint detection, • CCD camera with magnification > 120 X, • Laser beam diameter ≤ 20 m.

  27. Recap of Corial 200IL Features • New Inductively Coupled Plasma source with hot walls which reduces polymer condensation, enhances plasma cleaning, minimizes cross contamination. It produces High Density Plasma for uniform etching of films on batch of seven 2” wafers or wafer size up to 200 mm, • Low plasma potential (<25 Volts) and automatic self bias regulation to precisely control the ion energy, • Helium assisted heat exchange to maintain resist and device integrity, • Various shuttles to reduce cross contamination. They are designed to fit with wafers and processes recipes for the best process results, • Wide process range from isotropic to anisotropic and fast etch rate to low etch rate with very high selectivity, • Laser endpoint for precise process monitoring, • Capability of many etching modes from RIE, ICP + RIE and ICP in the same process recipe.
