Silicon Oxide Film Formation by the Simultaneous use of a Microwave Ion Source and an Icb System

  • Gikan H. Takaoka (a1), Hiroshi Tsuji (a2) and Junzo Ishikawa (a2)


SiO2 films were prepared at a substrate temperature of 100°C by the simultaneous use of a microwave ion source and an ICB system. Transparent and good insulating SiO2 films could be obtained by using 02 gas ions, and they were thermally and chemically stable. Furthermore, both the ionization energy and the incident energy of the 02 gas ions were found to enhance the chemical reaction between SiO and 02 molecules, resulting in the Si02 film formation at a low substrate temperature.
