Low Temperature Synthesis of Plasma Teos SiO2

  • T. Itani (a1) and S. Fukuyama (a1)


In this study, we investigated the deposition temperature's affect on TEOS based Si02 properties and reaction mechanisms while changing the excitation frequency. We used a parallel-plate plasma reactor, and either 100 kHz or 13.56 MHz radio frequency to generate plasma. We found that 100 kHz plasma promotes SiO formation and improves the film properties at low deposition temperatures. We assume this to be due to the supplement of higher energy ions to the substrate surface in 100 kHz plasma. This in turn promotes the elimination reaction (condensation reaction) of OH that links to Si atoms as a terminator of surface SiO networks or precursor molecules.
