Abstract

In this paper, we present data on the formation and structure of CVD W films deposited by the Si reduction of WF//6. Although the great majority of CVD W films deposited for IC applications are ostensibly deposited by H//2 reduction, the Si reduction of WF//6 always occurs first, even in the presence of copious amounts of H//2. Therefore, it is the Si reduction reaction that determines the nature of W/Si interface, and, in turn, such important properties as contact resistance and leakage current. We have found that Si reduced W films deposited between 210 degree C and 700 degree C are porous and discontinuous, and are probably not effective barriers to the further diffusion of WF//6.
