Paper Abstract

New processes using HBr chemistry have been developed for etching InP and related materials using photoresist as a mask in a high ion density inductively coupled plasma system. An etch rate of above 1 micron/min, a selectivity of 14:1 with vertical profile, and smooth etched surface have been achieved. The effects of ICP power, table temperature, chamber pressure and DC bias on etching rate, selectivity, etched profile and surface morphology will be discussed in this paper.
