Paper Abstract

Modem statistical modeling techniques are applied to the characterization and optimization of Rapid Thermal Chemical Vapor Deposition. The problems of deposition during process ramps and thickness uniformity modeling wafer are addressed. A two-phase fractional factorial experimental design is used to generate models for the deposition rate, uniformity measures, and normalized time responses. A constrained algebraic optimization algorithm is used to find the optimum settings for the reactor for the deposition of 2000A of polysilicon. The methods that are developed to handle these problems are shown in an application to the deposition of polysilicon in a LeiskTM reactor.
