The present application incorporates by reference each of the following applications which are related cases of a common assignee and contain related subject matter: One of the basic problems in integrated circuit manufacturing is defects caused by the presence of particulates.
For example, if photolithography with 0. This problem is becoming more and more troublesome because of two trends in integrated circuit processing: First, as device dimensions become smaller and smaller, the size of a "killing defect" becomes smaller, so that it is necessary to avoid the presence of smaller and smaller particles.
This makes the job of making sure that a clean room is really clean increasingly difficult. For example, a clean room which is Class 1 Moudule 9 and 10 reflection journal. Second, there is an increased desire to use large size integrated circuits. For example, integrated circuit sizes larger than This means that each fatal defect is likely to destroy a larger area of processed wafer than was previously true.
Another way to think of this is that not only has the critical defect size decreased, but the critical defect density has also decreased. Thus, particulates are not only an extremely important source of loss in integrated circuit manufacturing yields, but their importance will increase very rapidly in the coming years.
Thus, it is an object of the present invention to provide generally applicable methods for fabricating integrated circuits which reduce the sensitivity of the process to particulate contamination. One of the major sources of particulate contamination is human-generated, including both the particles which are released by human bodies and the particles which are stirred up by equipment operators moving around inside a semiconductor processing facility front end.
To reduce the potential for particulate contamination from this major source, the general trend in the industry has been to make more use of automatic transfer operations. Using such operations, for example, a cassette of wafers can be placed into a machine, and then the machine automatically transfers the wafers, one by one, from the cassette through the machine to effect the processing steps necessary and back to the cassette, without manual assistance.
However, efforts in the area of automatic transfer operations have served to highlight the importance of a second source of particles, namely particles generated by the wafers and the transfer mechanisms during handling and transport operations.
When the surface of the wafer jostles slightly against any other hard surface, some particulate of silicon, silicon dioxide, or other materials is likely to be released.
The particulate density inside a conventional wafer carrier is typically quite high, due to this source of particulate.
Moreover, many of the prior art mechanisms for wafer transport generate substantial quantities of particulate. The general problem is discussed in U.
Some types of wafer processing are shown in U. The prior applications of common assignee discussed above addressed this facet of the problem by providing a vacuum wafer carrier in which particulate generation due to abrasion of the surface of the wafer during transport is reduced.
The teachings of these prior applications enabled not only reduced generation of particulate in the carrier during transport and storage, but also reduced transport of particulate to the wafer's active face during transport and storage, by carrying the wafers face down under a high vacuum. This allowed the rapid settling of both ambient and transport generated particulate on other than the active wafer face.
The wafers can therefore be transported, loaded, unloaded and processed without ever seeing atmospheric or even low vacuum conditions. Large particles will simply fall ballistically, at the acceleration of gravity. Thus, an atmosphere with a pressure below Torr means that particles one hundred angstroms or larger can only be transported ballistically, and are not likely to be transported onto the critical wafer surface by random air currents or Brownian drift.
The relevance of this curve to the various embodiments described in the present application is that the prior applications were the first known teachings of a way to process wafers so that the wafers are never exposed to airborne particulates, from the time they are loaded into the first vacuum process station which might well be a scrubbing and pumpdown station until the time when processing has been completed, except where the processing step itself requires higher pressures e.
This means that the total possibilities for particulate collection on the wafers are vastly reduced. The prior applications cited above also taught use of the vacuum wafer carrier design together with a load lock and vacuum wafer transport mechanism at more than one process module, to provide a complete low-particulate wafer transfer system.
These vacuum load locks can usefully incorporate mechanisms for opening a vacuum wafer carrier after the load lock has been pumped down, for removing wafers from the carrier in whatever random-access order is desired, and for passing the wafers one by one through a port into an adjacent processing chamber.
Moreover, the load lock mechanism can close and reseal the vacuum wafer carrier, so that the load lock itself can be brought up to atmospheric pressure and the vacuum wafer carrier removed, without ever breaking the vacuum in the vacuum wafer carrier.
This process takes maximum advantage of the settling phenomena illustrated in FIG. The wafer can then be moved in a virtually particulate free environment from the carrier to the load lock, into the process chamber and back through the load lock to the carrier for, potentially, an entire manufacturing sequence.Jan 29, · A method for deposition of silicon oxide on a wafer in a process chamber, comprising the steps of: (a) generating free radicals from nitrous oxide gas in a plasma generating chamber remote from the process chamber;.
