Abstract

Pb(Zr, Ti)O3 (PZT) films were deposited into sub-micron trench structure consisting of SiO2/TiAlN/Ti/SiO2/Si to investigate their thickness and composition conformality by pulsed-metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) using liquid delivery source-supply system. Bis(dipivaloylmethanato)lead [Pb(DPM)2], tetrakis(1-methoxy-2-methyl-2-propoxy)zirconium [Zr(MMP)4] and tetrakis(1-methoxy-2-methyl-2-propoxy)titanium [Ti(MMP)4] were used as Pb, Zr and Ti source materials, respectively. In Arrhenius plot, the slopes of the straight lines for the constituents Pb, Zr and Ti in PZT film were almost the same at a lower deposition temperature (T d ) region as well as a higher T d one. This means the composition change in the film against the T d can be suppressed by using Pb(DPM)2-Zr(MMP)4-Ti(MMP)4-O2 source system. From the results of Arrhenius plot, the T d s were fixed on 450 and 540°C as lower and higher temperatures, respectively. At both T d s, the sidewall-bottom step coverage (SC s-b) was approximately 70 %, while the sidewall step coverage (SC sw) reached excellent values above 90 %. It is suggested that low SC s-b value was caused by crystallization of the PZT films at the bottom of the trench because underlayer of the film at this area was not SiO2 but crystalline TiAlN. On the other hand, no significant composition fluctuation was observed along the depth direction of the sidewall. These results mean that the film deposited at 540°C had almost the same level in terms of thickness and composition conformality as that deposited at 450°C.
