Paper Abstract

Detection and removal of residual films is important throughout the semiconductor integrated circuit fabrication process. However, at two steps in the production process, silicide formation and selective Tungsten growth, removal of residual films is critical. Failure to remove residuals prior to processing at these two steps results, at best, in devices with degraded performance and, at worst, in non-functional devices. A method for detecting residual films using ultraviolet reflectance measurements is described and experimental results are presented.
