1. About LPCVD

Low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (Low-pressure CVD, LPCVD) is designed to reduce the operating pressure of the reaction gas in the reactor for deposition reaction to below about 133Pa. The LPCVD pressure drops below about 133Pa. Correspondingly, the free path of molecules and the gas diffusion coefficient increase, so that the mass transfer rate of gaseous reactants and by-products is accelerated, and the reaction rate of film formation is increased. When the chip spacing is reduced to 5~10mm, the mass transfer limitation can still be ignored compared with the chemical reaction rate of the chip surface, which creates conditions for vertical densely packed chips, and greatly increases the amount of chips loaded in each batch. The figure below is a schematic diagram of the LPCVD system:

LPCVD Reaction Structure

LPCVD Reaction Structure

LPCVD is the mainstream process for film deposition above 90nm. Films deposited by LPCVD will have better step coverage, good composition and structure control, high deposition rate and output. Furthermore, LPCVD does not require carrier gas, thus greatly reducing the source of particle pollution, and is widely used in the high value-added semiconductor industry for thin film deposition. LPCVD is widely used in silicon dioxide (LTO TEOS), silicon nitride (low stress) (Si3N4), polysilicon (LP-POLY), phosphosilicate glass (BSG), borophosphosilicate glass (BPSG), doped polysilicon, graphite alkenes, carbon nanotubes and other thin films.

2. FAQ about Stoichiometric LPCVD Nitride on Silicon Wafers

Q: “Our lab is planning to fabricate some silicon nitride waveguide. so we need to buy some silicon nitride wafers,which means we need around 150 nm stoichiometric silicon nitride films on thermal oxides silicon wafers. the thermal oxide layer should be at least 1 um  thickness. silicon substrate is flexible.Below wafer is good thermal oxide wafer for us.  Do you have the processing service to grow 150 nm LPCVD low stress silicon nitride on below wafer? Thanks.
