Method of forming metal layer using atomic layer deposition and semiconductor device having the metal layer as barrier metal layer or upper or lower electrode of capacitor

A method of forming a metal layer having excellent thermal and oxidation resistant characteristics using atomic layer deposition is provided. The metal layer includes a reactive metal (A), an element (B) for the amorphous combination between the reactive metal (A) and nitrogen (N), and nitrogen (N). The reactive metal (A) may be titanium (Ti), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), zirconium (Zr), hafnium (Hf), molybdenum (Mo) or niobium (Nb). The amorphous combination element (B) may be aluminum (Al), silicon (Si) or boron (B). The metal layer is formed by alternately injecting pulsed source gases for the elements (A, B and N) into a chamber according to atomic layer deposition to thereby alternately stack atomic layers. Accordingly, the composition ratio of a nitrogen compound (A-B-N) of the metal layer can be desirably adjusted just by appropriately determining the number of injection pulses of each source gas. According to the composition ratio, a desirable electrical conductivity and resistance of the metal layer can be accurately obtained. The atomic layers are individually deposited, thereby realizing excellent step coverage even in a complex and compact region. A metal layer formed by atomic layer deposition can be employed as a barrier metal layer, a lower electrode or an upper electrode in a semiconductor device.

Method of forming a capacitor

The invention includes chemical vapor deposition and physical vapor deposition methods of forming high k ABO3 comprising dielectric layers on a substrate, where “A” is selected from the group consisting of Group IIA and Group IVB elements and mixtures thereof, and where “B” is selected from the group consisting of Group IVA metal elements and mixtures thereof. In one implementation, a plurality of precursors comprising A, B and O are fed to a chemical vapor deposition chamber having a substrate positioned therein under conditions effective to deposit a high k ABO3 comprising dielectric layer over the substrate. During the feeding, pressure within the chamber is varied effective to produce different concentrations of A at different elevations in the deposited layer and where higher comparative pressure produces greater concentration of B in the deposited layer. In one implementation, a subatmospheric physical vapor deposition method of forming a high k ABO3 comprising dielectric layer on a substrate includes providing a sputtering target comprising ABO3 and a substrate to be deposited upon within a physical vapor deposition chamber. A sputtering gas is fed to the chamber under conditions effective to sputter the target and deposit a high k ABO3 comprising dielectric layer over the substrate. During the feeding, pressure is varied within the chamber effective to produce different concentrations of B at different elevations in the deposited layer and where higher comparative pressure produces greater concentration of B in the deposited layer.

Method of forming metal nitride film by chemical vapor deposition and method of forming metal contact and capacitor of semiconductor device using the same

A method of forming a metal nitride film using chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and a method of forming a metal contact and a semiconductor capacitor of a semiconductor device using the same, are provided. The method of forming a metal nitride film using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) in which a metal source and a nitrogen source are used as a precursor, includes the steps of inserting a semiconductor substrate into a deposition chamber, flowing the metal source into the deposition chamber, removing the metal source remaining in the deposition chamber by cutting off the inflow of the metal source and flowing a purge gas into the deposition chamber, cutting off the purge gas and flowing the nitrogen source into the deposition chamber to react with the metal source adsorbed on the semiconductor substrate, and removing the nitrogen source remaining in the deposition chamber by cutting off the inflow of the nitrogen source and flowing the purge gas into the deposition chamber. Accordingly, the metal nitride film having low resistivity and a low content of Cl even with excellent step coverage can be formed at a temperature of 500° C. or lower, and a semiconductor capacitor having excellent leakage current characteristics can be manufactured. Also, a deposition speed, approximately 20 A / cycle, is suitable for mass production.
