Paper Abstract

Fine pattern was delineated by an electron beam (E-beam) exposure system and an electron cyclotron resonance (EcR) plasma etcher. First, "micro-loading effect", which is apt to reduce an etching rate in a much smaller pattern, was investigated by photoresist etching with 02 gas, and the relationship between the above effect and the 02 pressure was obtained. Secondly, a very fine Si trench structure was etched with mixing etchant gases of C12 and 02. A Si trench structure with 0.25 μm width and 1.5 μm depth was achieved by a novel etching technology that both the amount of 02 and radio frequence (RF) bias power were changed during etching.
