Semiconductor Processing Applications of Microwave Plasmas

  • J. Paraszczak
  • J. Heidenreich
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 302)


Plasmas with electron densities ranging from 108 to 1012 electrons/cc. are pervasively used in the microelectronics industry for a variety of purposes. These include etching, deposition and surface treatment of materials ranging from insulators such as polymers or inorganic dielectrics to conductors or semiconductors such as metals, silicon, gallium arsenide and other such materials.
