Title
(EN) METHODS FOR ETCHING METAL FILMS USING PLASMA PROCESSING
(FR) PROCÉDÉS DE GRAVURE DE FILMS MÉTALLIQUES À L'AIDE D'UN TRAITEMENT AU PLASMA
Abstract
(EN)
A method of plasma processing that includes maintaining a plasma processing chamber between 10 °C to 200 °C, flowing oxygen and nitrogen into the plasma processing chamber, where a ratio of a flow rate of the nitrogen to a flow rate of oxygen is between about 1:5 and about 1:1, and etching a ruthenium/osmium layer by sustaining a plasma in the plasma processing chamber.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de traitement au plasma qui comprend les étapes consistant à maintenir une chambre de traitement au plasma entre 10 oC et 200 oC, à faire s'écouler de l'oxygène et de l'azote dans la chambre de traitement au plasma, le rapport entre le débit de l'azote et le débit de l'oxygène étant compris entre environ 1:5 et environ 1:1, et à graver une couche de ruthénium/osmium par maintien d'un plasma dans la chambre de traitement au plasma.
