The material from the surface is dissolved in the gas ambient by the chemical reaction with the gas molecules. The applications of vapour-phase etching technologies are silicon dioxide etching using hydrogen fluoride (HF) and silicon etching using xenon difluoride (XeF2). The etched structures are isotropic. The disadvantage of this technique is that the production of by-products arises from the chemical reaction, which may be due to the condensation of the intermediate compound on the surface of the substrate.
If hf is the thickness of the layer material and l is the lateral distance etched underneath the resist mask, we can define the degree of anisotropy (Af) by Af ≡ 1 − 1 Rt R = 1− l = 1− l hf Rv t Rv where t is the time Rl and Rv are the lateral and vertical etch rates, respectively For isotropic etching Rl = Rv and Af = 0 Substrate for MEMS 25 Basic steps of dry etching process: 1. 5 Plasma Etching Fully/partially ionized gas is composed of equal number of positive and negative charges. High electric field initiates free electrons that collide with gas molecules and break the gas to ions.
Less exposure to unsafe gases and chemicals makes it environmentally friendly. 1). In all vacuum coating methods, layers are formed by the deposition of materials from the gas phase. The coating material may be formed by physical processes such as evaporation and sputtering or by chemical reaction. The problem associated with chemical deposition technique of the film is erratic, and the thickness is non-uniform. The main advantage of vacuum is the formation of the conformal coating ranging from several nanometres to more than 100 mm with high quality and superb repeatability of coating property.
