EKC Tech XPOT abstract:
Topic: Cleaning Challenges - BEOL Hard Mask Integration

Shrinking interconnect geometries require non-photoresist masking materials during plasma patterning. However, the use of, for example, metal hardmasks increases the demands on subsequent wet clean steps. The residues created during hardmask etching are tenacious and require highly selective cleaning to increasingly sensitive dielectrics and metals. This presentation will review these technical hurdles and present data addressing them.
