Stationary focus ring for plasma reactor

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #5552124.

A stationary focus ring for use in a plasma reactor during wafer processing includes a first slotted opening through which a wafer transfer blade and wafer may pass, and includes a second slotted opening, where the two openings cooperate to provide a balanced gas flow distribution across the wafer surface, such that process uniformity is achieved across the wafer surface, while minimizing the actual size of the openings to provide an increased level of reaction commensurate with that of a solid, movable focus ring. Alternatively, a thick focus ring that displaces chamber volume and thereby stabilizes gas flow within the chamber has a circular, an eccentric, and/or a baffle configuration to provide uniform gas flow distribution across the wafer surface.
