                Endura? Volta? Selective W CVD

                Tungsten has been widely used as a gapfill material in middle-of-line (MOL) contacts for its low resistivity and bulk fill characteristics. MOL contacts form the critical electrical link between the transistors and the interconnects. Hence, ensuring low resistivity contacts is crucial for overall device performance.

                With continued scaling, however, contact dimensions have decreased to the point at which contact resistance is becoming a bottleneck in realizing optimum device performance. As the cross-sectional area of the contact shrinks, a growing proportion of the volume is occupied by metal liner/barrier and nucleation layers, leaving less volume for the conducting metal fill. In addition, multiple resistive interfaces in the plug contribute to higher contact resistance.

                The Applied Endura Volta Selective W CVD system offers an integrated materials solution that relieves these adverse effects with a breakthrough in 2D scaling. The system combines surface treatment chambers with selective tungsten deposition chambers. The selective deposition is enabled by both the unique process capabilities of the deposition chambers and the various surface treatments that use specialized chemistries to prepare the underlying metal and dielectrics of the contact to enable bottom-up, metal-on-metal deposition. The selective process eliminates both liner/barrier and nucleation layers to alleviate the bottleneck in device performance, and produces void- and seam-free gapfill.

                As all process steps are performed in an ultra-clean, continuous high-vacuum environment, the integrated materials solution ensures a pristine interface and defect-free contact fill. With the volume of conducting metal maximized, contact resistivity is substantially improved compared to conventional liner/barrier contact fabrication. This lower resistance facilitates higher device density and extends 2D scaling.

                In conventional contact gapfill, the volume of conducting
                metal is limited by the liner/barrier and nucleation layer.
                Selective tungsten makes the entire volume
                of the contact available for conducting metal.
                The integrated materials solution for selective deposition combines
                specialized pre-treatment of surfaces with a unique tungsten deposition process.
