Trion’s carefully engineered ICP is a proven option for applications requiring a downstream, high-density plasma source. It dramatically reduces radiation damage and contamination from RIE sputtering and greatly increases selectivity to other films. It allows for higher plasma densities as power is transferred into the bulk plasma via the magnetic field resultant from inductive coupling. This enables processing at lower pressure, which has a number of significant benefits. It allows for tight anisotropy in high aspect ratio structures and reduces microloading effect. Trion’s ICP source will result in improved etch rates, profile control, uniformity and selectivity with a dramatic reduction in RIE radiation damage. The ICP comes with a 600 or 1250 watt, 13.56 MHz power supply and a built in automatic matching network.
