It seems that the etching mechanism is in some sense the inverse of metal organic chemical vapor deposition, with the formation of (CH3^Ga and H,As as reaction products. In order to understand and control these processes, we present results of a GaAs etching study using an ion beam from a Kauf- man source with hydrogen-methane mixtures as feed by: In reactive ion etching (RIE) of ZnO by methane-based plasmas, the predominant ion-surface interactions are considered to occur through small hydrocarbon ions such as CH+ and CH3+.
There exists an increasing interest in the development of low damage, dry etch processes for III–V materials. For the etching of GaAs, a wide range of gases has been employed, including: Cl 2, BCl 3, CCl 4, SiCl 4, CCl 2 F 2 with and without various mixtures of O 2, H 2, He and Ar.
Damage is of particular concern in devices such as MESFETs and HEMTs but it is possible to Author: Steve Osborne, Helen Royal. Two reactive ion etchants, CF4 and SF6, have been compared in terms of plasma characteristics, silicon oxide etch characteristics, extent of RIE damage, and formation of barrier layers on a GaAs surface after oxide etch.
It was found that higher etch rates with lower plasma-induced dc bias can be achieved with SF6 plasma relative to CF4 plasma and that this Cited by: The plasma parameters and mechanisms of gallium arsenide (GaAs) reactive plasma etching in HCl-Ar and HCl-Cl2 mixtures under constant-current glow discharge conditions were investigated.

EXPERIMENTAL, GaAs, PLASMA ETCHING, RATE CONSTANTS: Abstract: Known chlorine atom concentrations were prepared in a discharge flow system and used to etch the () face of a gallium arsenide single crystal.
The etch rate was monitored by mass spectrometry, laser interferometry, and surface profilometry. The ion beam etching (IBE) is a physical dry etch process. Thereby argon ions are radiated onto the surface as an ion beam with about 1 to 3 keV. Because of the energy of the ions, they strike out material of the surface.
The wafer is held perpendicular or tilted into the ion beam, the etch progress is absolute anisotropic.
