Paper Abstract

The selectivity and etched profile of MoSiON in high-density CF4/O2/He inductively coupled plasma (ICP) have been studied. The etched profiles of MoSiON along with the quartz surface morphologies were investigated as a function of etching parameters by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). We varied pressure from 5 mtorr to 20 mtorr and CF4 flow rate from 15 sccm to 40 sccm. A smooth quartz surface and a vertical MoSiON slope were observed under 10 sccm CF4, 15 sccm of O2 flow rate, -240 V of DC bias and 5 mtorr pressure. And the other conditions showed rough quartz surface and bad MoSiON slope. Only at the appropriate CF4/O2 Flow rate, high vapor pressure compounds inhibits nonuniform quartz etching.
