Silicon plasma etching was carried out using RIE etcher RIE-10NR. Low-power etching process was newly developed in fluorine chemistry to fabricate vertical smooth sidewalls.
National University of Singapore is one of Samco’s proud customers. As seen in this paper, Samco RIE etcher RIE-10NR shows process versatility with excellent profile control for university lab users. The system can offer a wide range of process window for etching of various materials (silicon, SiO2, SiNx, metals and polymer).
