Modified RIE chamber for uniform silicon etching

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4340461.

A plasma enhancing baffle plate is employed in conjunction with the anode of an RIE system to provide uniform silicon etching. The baffle plate is conductively coupled to and provided in relatively close proximity to the anode to form a constricted chamber region between anode and baffle plate. With the constricted chamber open to the RIE chamber through aperture means in the baffle plate the total surface area of the anode is increased, such that when the system is biased to operate in an RIE mode an increase in the generation of neutral etching species is effected. Various aperture arrangements may be employed to provide different patterns of neutral etching species generation, in accordance with the peculiar characteristics of the system employed.
