In this paper a systematic investigation of nitrided oxides obtained by Rapid Thermal Oxidation/Nitridation (RTO/RTN) in AMAT Centura System is reported. Two different aspects were considered: first the comparison between single wafers and batch technology, second the different possible oxide architecture achievable with RTO/RTN system (i.e. RTO + RTN, RTN + RTO, RTN + RTO + RTN). Both morphological and patterned wafers were processed. Physical and chemical characterizations were carried out by means of SIMS, XPS, ELYMAT, AFM and Etching Rate studies. Morphological results were then correlated to electrical data obtained on MOS capacitors. The film obtained performing a NO RTN nitridation of the native oxide followed by a ISSG (In Situ Steam Generation) oxidation exhibited very promising electrical properties that made it an appealing candidate as gate dielectric in CMOS and Flash memories applications.
