10970 results about "Chemical vapor deposition" patented technology

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a vacuum deposition method used to produce high quality, high-performance, solid materials. The process is often used in the semiconductor industry to produce thin films.

Method for depositing thin films by mixed pulsed CVD and ald

Films are deposited on a substrate by a process in which atomic layer deposition (ALD) is used to deposit one layer of the film and pulsed chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is used to deposit another layer of the film. During the ALD part of the process, a layer is formed by flowing sequential and alternating pulses of mutually reactive reactants that deposit self-limitingly on a substrate. During the pulsed CVD part of the process, another layer is deposited by flowing two CVD reactants into a reaction chamber, with at least a first of the CVD reactants flowed into the reaction chamber in pulses, with those pulses overlapping at least partially with the flow of a second of the CVD reactants. The ALD and CVD parts of the process ca be used to deposit layers with different compositions, thereby forming, e.g., nanolaminate films. Preferably, high quality layers are formed by flowing the second CVD reactant into the reaction chamber for a longer total duration than the first CVD reactant. In some embodiments, the pulses of the third reactant at separated by a duration at least about 1.75 times the length of the pulse. Preferably, less than about 8 monolayers of material are deposited per pulse of the first CVD reactant.

Plasma cleaning and etching methods using non-global-warming compounds

Provided is a novel method of cleaning a chemical vapor deposition processing chamber having deposits on an inner surface thereof is provided. The process involves forming a plasma from one or more gases comprising a fluorine-containing but otherwise halogen-free non-global-warming compound, and contacting active species generated in the plasma with the inner surface of the chamber, with the proviso that the non-global-warming compound is not trifluoroacetic anhydride. Also provided is a method of etching a layer on a silicon wafer. The method involves the steps of: (a) introducing a silicon wafer into a processing chamber, the silicon wafer comprising a layer to be etched; and (b) forming a plasma from one or more gases comprising a fluorine-containing but otherwise halogen-free non-global-warming compound. Active species generated in the plasma are contacted with the silicon wafer, thereby etching the layer, with the proviso that the non-global-warming compound is not trifluoroacetic anhydride. The chemistries in accordance with the invention provide environmentally benign alternatives to the conventionally used global-warming chemistries for chamber cleaning and semiconductor etching processes.
