Using a combination of etch rate, photoconductance, and deep level transient spectroscopy(DLTS) measurements, the authors have investigated the use of reactive ion etching (RIE) of dielectrics and Si in CHF₃∕O₂ and CHF₃∕Arplasmas for photovoltaic applications. The radio frequency power (rf-power) and gas flow rate dependencies have shown that the addition of either O₂ or Ar to CHF₃ can be used effectively to change the etch selectivity between SiO₂ and Si₃N₄. The effective carrier lifetime of...[Show more]
