We report on the investigation of ohmic contact formation using sputtered titanium-tungsten contacts on an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etch-damaged 4H-SiC surface. Transfer length method (TLM) measurements were performed to characterize how ICP-etch damage affects the performance of ohmic contacts to silicon carbide.

The wet chemical etching of silicon using HNO 3-rich HF/HNO 3 mixtures has been studied. The effect of different parameters on the etch rate of silicon, for example, the HF/HNO 3 mixing ratio, the silicon content of the etchant, temperature, and stirring speed in these solutions, has been examined and discussed in light of a previous study on etching in HF-rich HF/HNO 3 mixtures.
Abstract: Amorphous nitrogen-doped silicon carbide (α-SiCN:H) films have been used as a Cu penetration diffusion barrier and interconnect etch stop layer in the below 90-nanometer ultra-large scale integration (ULSI) manufacturing technology. In this study,

15/7/2020· When CF4-plasma was found to etch nitride, people were willing to invest in plasma etching even though it was immature technology and not very production worthy, just because the alternative was definitely difficult. In silicon etching in KOH, silicon dioxide or
With a Planar ICP, etch profiles are typically anisotropic, and the very high Ion density makes this type of ICP source ideal for etching hard materials such as Quartz, and Silicon Carbide. The Planar ICP flat coil can cause issues with uniformity across the substrate, and various techniques have been used to reduce this effect such as moving the chuck height, and adding magnetics to shape the
silicon carbide layer.24 The hard mask layers and any etch by-products remaining on the hole sidewalls are then removed through subsequent wet etches in Ti etchant, Al etchant, and buffered hydrofluoric acid.

A low pressure etching of silicon carbide is qualitatively characterized by using a neural network. To construct a predictive model, the etch process was characterized by means of a 25 full factorial experiment. Experimental factors that were varied include radio frequency (rf) source power, bias power, pressure, O2 fraction, and gap between the plasma source and wafer. An additional 15
