Abstract

A-SiC has been thought as an ideal candidate for conventional silicon at many applications. However, the uniformity problem of deposition has been a obstacle for conventional use of a-SiC:H films. a-SiC:H films were deposited on (100) silicon wafer by RPECVD system in various temperature. HMDS and H 2 gas were used as a precursor and a carrier gas, respectively. The flow rate of HMDS source and C2H2 dilution gas was fixed in order to study the carbon effect on the film stoichiometric and bonding properties. The plasma power varied from 200 to 400 W. We used three types of source delivery line to control the uniformity and film properties of deposited film. We showed that the change of source delivery line has effect on the film uniformity of deposited film and this change of line did not affect on film properties. Also, the change of deposition conditions has effect on the film uniformity.
