Paper Abstract

Experiments concerning silicon oxide deposition using a focused ion beam were carried out in order to apply silicon oxide as insulator in integrated circuit modification. Silicon oxide film was formed using a 25-keV gallium focused ion beam with a mixed gas of tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane and oxygen. The deposited film consisted of mainly silicon and oxygen, which was analyzed by micro-Auger electron spectroscopy. It also contained 5 percent gallium, but carbon content was below noise level. The ratio of silicon to oxygen was 1 to 2. It was found that carbon content depended on oxygen used as deposition source gas. The resistivities of the eight deposited silicon oxide films were measured. The resistivities wer 28-79 M(Omega) cm at 5 volts and these values did not change significantly even after the samples were left in a room for three months. It was determined that it will be possible to use deposited silicon oxide for integrated circuit modification.
