Plasma Etching Processes for CMOS Device Realization

Edited by Nicolas Posseme, CEA-LETI Laboratory, Grenoble, France

Plasma etching has long enabled the perpetuation of Moore's Law. Today, etch compensation helps to create devices that are smaller than 20 nm. But, with the constant downscaling in device dimensions and the emergence of complex 3D structures (like FinFet, Nanowire and stacked nanowire at longer term) and sub 20 nm devices, plasma etching requirements have become more and more stringent.
Now more ...
