Data - InP Ridge Etch (Oxford ICP Etcher)

PECVD SiO2 hardmask, patterned on Stepper #2 (AutoStep 200) & Panasonic ICP #1

InP Ridge Etch: 60°C, 3mT, 800W/65W, Cl2=18, H2=15, CH4=10sccm, time=5min00sec (300sec)

Sample Size: 1x1cm, ~30-40% SiO2 masking (NingC's pattern). Silicon carrier, no adhesive.

Dependence on Sample Size

We have found that the size of the InP piece loaded (no adhesive, onto Silicon carrier wafer) affects the etch rate, but does not affect the etch profile - ie. etches are still smooth and vertical, but rate varies with sample area.

InP Ridge Etch: 60°C, 3mT, 800W/65W, Cl2=18, H2=15, CH4=10sccm, time=5min05sec (305sec)

Silicon carrier, no adhesive.
