Paper Abstract

This paper describes the application of reactive ion etching to submicron single-layer lithography. It is shown that the etch selectivity of silicon containing resists is a strong function of the ion energy; that is, the selectivity increases for low ion energies. That supports the use of magnetically enhanced ion etchers for the development of single-layer silylated photoresists since the ion energy in these reactors is low for most process conditions. This paper shows that by a proper design of the reactor and the process good selectivity can also be achieved in a reactive ion etcher. This allows for the use of a simple reactor for some dry-develop lithography applications. The conditions leading to good selectivity as well as several submicron applications are described in this paper.
