Paper Abstract

The HF plasma enhanced sulphidation is used, as a low temperature alternative of passivation of the InP surface for the elaboration of the gate insulator in MISFET-InP. The species (atom, radical, ion) present in the H2S glow discharge and the potential repartition in a HF plasma, capacitive type with internal electrodes, are described. We comment models of the sulphide layers with composition and surface and interface roughness resulting of XPS Spectroscopy, Spectroscopic Ellipsometry ang Grazing X Ray Reflectrometry. We give a growth mechanism of the sulphide layer and we show the duality between the growth and ionic bombardment mechanisms of a growing layer in HF plasma.
