Paper Abstract

An ICP spectrometer was modified to sample both gaseous and liquids in a controlled format. The gas proportioner was characterized and the ICP sample flow rate was adjusted to prevent negative effects on the plasma profile. Spectra comparisons were done using Ar to compare the effect of sampling techniques. The comparison of spectra from the ICP and the plasma etch tools from simple gas mixtures resulted in similar atomic spectra, although the spectral intensity distribution differed. Characterizations were done on moisture contamination, additive gas effects, loading effects, ionic dopant levels, and metallic silicide films. As the samples became more complex, the resulting spectra differences between plasma sources became less similar.
