Abstract

High-density plasma chemical vapor deposition (HDP-CVD) fluorosilicate glass (FSG) films were evaluated for the application of inter-metal dielectric (IMD) materials in current devices. Film characteristics were examined as a function of deposition/sputter etch (D/S) ratio, which was controlled by the bias power in HDP-CVD. FTIR spectra show that the positions of Si-O and Si-F peaks are independent of the bias power, but the Si-O shifted to a higher wave number and Si-F2 appeared upon annealing for the films deposited at lower bias power. Stress hysteresis of the FSG films after the first thermal cycle shows a nonequilibrium nature of the microstructure related to impurity content, especially for the film deposited with lower bias power. Thermal desorption of H2O, F, O2 and Ar were examined, while most of the desorption behaviour can be related to the physical pore structure and pore quantity.
