Sputter SiO2 deposition process has a challenge in reproducibility in device fabrication.
In this paper, as an alternative of the sputter deposition method, PECVD deposition method was developed in combination with Ar ion milling. Samco PECVD system, PD-270STL at AIST was used for SiO2 insulation layer deposition. With effective chamber conditioning, SiO2 insulation with less particles was achieved with an excellent run-to-run reproducibility.

This research was presented at 29th International Symposium on Superconductivity.
