Reactive Ion Etching (RIE) of silicon for the technology of nanoelectronic devices and structures

Piotr Wiśniewski , Robert Paweł Mroczyński , Bogdan Majkusiak


In this work we present the investigations aimed at the optimization of the technology of Reactive Ion Etching in sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) plasma of silicon, which is necessary during fabrication of TFET according to the original concept of the device designed at Institute of Microelectronics and Optoelectronics (IMiO) of Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) laboratory. We have performed a two-stage optimization of RIE process’ parameters in order to obtain a controllable process characterized by good selectivity and anisotropy. Presented in this study findings have shown that the SF6 flow most significantly influence onto the RIE process’ results. Selected and optimized processing step will be used in the course of the fabrication of TFET devices, in future.
