摘要: Fluorinated amorphous carbon films (a-C:F) deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition with low dielectric constant (K similar to2.3), thermal stability (higher than 400 degreesC) and acceptable adhesion to a cap layer such as SiOF or SiO2 were obtained by varying the range of content ratios between carbon and fluorine, the rf power, the process pressure and the base temperature. Standard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and thermal desorption spectroscopy metrologies were employed to characterize the deposited a-C:F films. The damascene pattern with 0.15 mum and an etching selectivity of more than 50 (a-C:F/SiOF, SiO2) was implemented by a mixture of etching gases of N-2+O-2. The bias power, rf power and gas hows were incorporated to optimize the etching recipe for achieving a damascene profile with a high aspect ratio. The scanning electron microscope results showed that a better etch profile can be obtained at higher bias power. In our damascene architecture, the etching stop layer or hard mask of both SiOF and SiO2 was studied. The SiOF, providing a lower dielectric constant than SiO2, would especially reduce the entire effective dielectric constant. Furthermore, we integrated electroplated copper into trenches or vias as small as 0.15 mum, with aspect ratio of 6. (C) 2001 American Vacuum Society.
