Paper Abstract

In this work, we studied reproducibility and yield in the fabrication of quarter-micron and sub-quarter-micron gates for GaAs FETs. To achieve reproducible gate length and high gate yield, an optimized lift-off process was used in conjunction with variation in the e-beam writing strategy. Statistical analysis of several wafers was made for each gate length at a given processing and exposure condition. It was observed that the gate length obtained was dependent on the exposing electron beam diameter, which in turn is a functi©n of filament (LaB6) age. Reproducibility of gate length is independent of accelerating voltage. Both reproducibility and yield are improved by use of smaller field size. At 1.6-mm field, two adjacent pass exposures provided better reproducibility for quarter-micron gates than did single-pass exposure. The associated yield was higher than 95%.
