Enhanced adhesion of PECVD carbon on dielectric materials by providing an adhesion interface

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #8415257.

Amorphous carbon material may be deposited with superior adhesion on dielectric materials, such as TEOS based silicon oxide materials, in complex semiconductor devices by applying a plasma treatment, such as an argon treatment and/or forming a thin adhesion layer based on silicon dioxide, carbon-doped silicon dioxide, prior to depositing the carbon material. Consequently, the hard mask concept based on amorphous carbon may be applied with an increased degree of flexibility, since a superior adhesion may allow a higher degree of flexibility in selecting appropriate deposition parameters for the carbon material.
