Paper Abstract

NF3 was injected into the downstream of H2 + H2O plasma to produce etchant for SiO2 without dissociating NF3 in order to minimize residual fluorine, and native oxide on Si(111) surfaces was removed by the downstream treatment. ATR FT-IR measurement showed that native oxide on the Si surface was removed and a hydrogen terminated surface was obtained. AES measurement revealed that residual fluorine was below detection limits.
