Paper Abstract

Specialized EPROM cell architectures lead to a host of new difficulties during pattern transfer. Results from patterning stacked gate structure multilayers of WSix, polysilicon, SiO2 and Si3N4 with etching chemistries containing HBr and Cl2 are examined. Strong effects arising from changes in feed composition and wafer temperature are discussed along with some basic mechanisms involved in these interactions.
