具体实施方式 DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0069] 如图1所示,一基材抓持件或支撑件10是被设置在一制程腔室12内,其中该制程腔室12是用以处理被置放在基材支撑件表面14上的基材13。 [0069] Figure 1, a substrate or support member gripping member 10 is disposed within a process chamber 12, wherein the process chamber 12 is used for processing the substrate is placed in the support surface 14 on the substrate 13. 一气体分配构件16是大致上被设置成相对于基材支撑表面14,其中该气体分配构件16典型地为具有用以导入气体的数个孔洞的一面板。 A gas distribution member 16 is arranged substantially with respect to the support surface of the substrate 14, wherein the gas distribution member 16, typically for introducing a gas having a plurality of orifices of a panel. 基材支撑件10包括有一轴18,该轴18被支撑在一支撑结构或毂20 上且可相对于毂20滑动以调整基材支撑件表面14与面板16之间的间距。 Substrate support 10 comprises a shaft 18, the shaft 18 is supported on a support structure or the hub 20 and the hub 20 relative to the slide to adjust the distance between the surface of the substrate support between 14 and panel 16. 毂20被设置于腔室12之外。 Hub 20 is disposed outside the chamber 12. 轴18是通过一促动器M而可垂直地移动。 The shaft 18 is movable vertically by means of a actuator M. 基材抓持件10的倾斜可以由毂20的倾斜来定义,这是因为其两者相互连接。 Inclined substrate gripping member 10 may be defined by the inclination of the hub 20, since it is both interconnected. 毂20连接至一托架观,该托架观是被设置于一升举构件或升举板30。 Hub 20 is connected to a bracket concept, the carrier concept is set to a lifting member or the lifting plate 30. 基材抓持件10的倾斜的调整是通过调整升举板的倾斜来达成。 The base member to adjust the inclination of the grip 10 is inclined by adjusting the lifting plate to achieve.

[0070] 升举板30大致上被设置成平行于基材支撑件表面14。 [0070] leveling plate 30 is disposed substantially parallel to the surface of the substrate support member 14. 至少两调整构件34与一连接构件(例如一球形轴承)被耦接在介于升举板30与一参考表面36之间。 At least two adjustment members 34 and a connecting member (e.g., a spherical bearing) are coupled between the leveling plate 36 between 30 liters and a reference surface. 在所显示的实施例中,参考表面36为腔室12的底部表面36,但是其可以为相对于面板16被固定住的其他表面。 In the embodiment shown, the reference surface 36 of the bottom surface 36 of the chamber 12, but it may be fixed with respect to the other surface of the panel 16 is live. 参考表面36可以大致上平行于面板16。 Reference surface 36 can be substantially parallel to the panel 16. 调整构件34是在数个调整位置40处被连接至升举板30,其中该些调整位置40是分布于升举板30上。 Adjustment member 34 is adjusted in a number of positions 40 is connected to the lifting plate 30, wherein the plurality of adjusting the position 40 is located in the lifting plate 30. 调整构件34是可以独立调整的以改变在调整位置40处升举板30与参考表面36之间的间距。 Adjustment member 34 can be independently adjusted to change in the adjustment position 40 liters lift plate 30 and the reference distance between the surface 36. 这会接着改变在数个对应调整位置42处介于基材支撑件表面14与面板16之间的间距,藉此调整了基材支撑件表面14相对于面板16的倾斜。 This will be followed by a corresponding change in the number of positions to adjust the spacing 42 between the surface of the substrate support between 14 and panel 16, thereby adjusting the tilt panel 16 relative to the substrate support surface 14. 在图1实施例中,基材支撑件表面14的对应调整位置42为大致上对齐于升举板30的调整位置40,这是因为升举板30是大致上平行于基材支撑件表面14。 In the embodiment of FIG. 1, a substrate support member 42 to adjust the position of the corresponding surface substantially aligned with the leveling plate 30 to adjust the position of 40 14, because the lifting plate 30 is substantially parallel to the surface of the substrate support member 14 . 在特定实施例中,对应调整位置42相对于基材支撑件表面14中心而均勻地分布于基材支撑件表面14周围。 In a particular embodiment, a corresponding adjustment of the position of the substrate 42 relative to the support surface 14 and the center 14 uniformly distributed around the substrate support surface.

[0071] 如图2所更详细显示者,升举板30包括有数个量测位置50以监控量测装置于量测升举板30与参考表面36之间的间距。 [0071] in Figure 2 are shown in more detail, the lifting plate 30 includes several measurement positions 50 to monitor the measuring device to measure the lifting plate spacing 36 between the 30 and the reference surface. 如图2与图3所示,量测位置50包括有用以装设量测装置M的沟槽,其中该量测装置M可以为测微计(micrometer)。 As shown in FIG. 2 and FIG. 3, the measurement position 50 comprises a useful measuring device M provided in the trench, wherein the measuring device M may be a micrometer (micrometer). 当调整升举板30 时,测微计M可以暂时地被装设在量测位置50,并且在调整结束后被移除。 When adjusting the lifting plate 30, micrometer M can be temporarily installed in the measurement position 50, and removed after the adjustment is completed. 典型地,每一量测位置50具有一对应量测位置40,并且每一量测位置50被设置于接近或邻近于对应量测位置40。 Typically, each measurement location 50 has a measuring position corresponding to 40, and each measurement location 50 is disposed proximate or adjacent to a corresponding measurement position 40. 例如,介于每一量测位置50与对应量测位置40之间的距离为实质上小于基材13 的直径(例如小于约基材直径的10% )。 For example, between the substrate 13 is substantially less than the diameter (e.g., less than about 10% of the base diameter) the distance between each of the measurement positions 40 and 50 corresponding to the measurement position. 在替代实施例中,量测位置50与调整位置40的数目与邻近性可以改变。 In an alternative embodiment, the measurement position 50 and the number 40 and adjust the position of proximity can be changed. 可以使用不同的量测技术。 You can use different measuring techniques. [0072] 每一调整构件34包括有调整螺丝,调整螺丝刻纹地耦接至升举板30且具有抵顶住制程腔室12的参考表面36的末端58。 [0072] Each adjustment member 34 includes adjustment screws, adjustment screws threadingly coupled to the leveling plate 30 and having a process chamber abutting against the reference surface 12 of the terminal 36 58. 一突出锁固螺帽60刻纹地耦接至每一调整螺丝34,且抵顶住升举板30的底部表面。 A prominent locking nut 60 threadingly coupled to each of the adjusting screw 34, and the lift plate abuts against the bottom surface 30. 另一突出锁固螺帽62亦可以被提供以刻纹地耦接至调整螺丝34且抵顶住升举板30的顶部表面。 Another highlight locking nut 62 can also be provided to threadingly coupled to the adjustment screw 34 and abuts against the top surface of the lift plate 30. 突出锁固螺帽较佳地提供了足够的微调以达到升举板30与基材支撑件表面14的倾斜调整的所希望精确性(例如调整约4密尔)。 Projecting locking nuts preferably provide sufficiently fine-tuned to achieve the lifting plate 30 and the inclined surface of the substrate support member 14 to adjust the desired accuracy (e.g., about 4 mils adjustment). 一Allren扳手或类似工具可被用以旋转该突出锁固螺帽以进行调整。 Allren a wrench or similar tool can be used to rotate the projecting locking nut to make adjustments. 当然,其他适当的调整机构可以被用于替代的实施例中。 Of course, other suitable adjustment mechanisms may be used in alternative embodiments.

[0073] 实验已经证明层次在一基材13上的沉积速率是与基材13及面板16之间的间距相关联,因此形成在基材13上层次的厚度均勻性可以通过改变基材支撑件表面14的倾斜来调整,其中基材13停置于该基材支撑件表面14上。 [0073] Experiments have shown that levels of deposition rate on a substrate 13 is associated with the base spacing 13 between the panel 16 and, thus formed on the substrate 13 levels of thickness uniformity by changing the substrate support member the inclined surface 14 is adjusted, wherein the substrate 13 stops placed on the substrate support surface 14. 图4与图5是显示出两组试验的实验结果。 Figures 4 and 5 show the experimental results of two tests.

[0074] 在图4中,改变基材与面板之间的间距而形成BPSG薄膜在基材上。 [0074] In Figure 4, changing the spacing between the substrate and the panel is formed on the BPSG film on the substrate. 薄膜是使用He、 TEOS, TEB、TEPO作为制程气体于约550°C温度与约200托耳压力而被形成。 The film is the use of He, TEOS, TEB, TEPO as the process gas at about 550 ° C. And about 200 Torr pressure is formed. 图4绘制出沉积速率(A /min)与间距(mils)的关系图。 Figure 4 plot the deposition rate (A / min) and the spacing (mils) of the diagram. 当间距增加时,沉积速率降低约27. 953 A / min,其为用以计算出对于特定制程的一关联因子的线的斜率。 When the distance increases, the deposition rate decreases to about 27. 953 A / min, which is used to calculate the specific manufacturing process for a correlation factor of the slope of the line.

[0075] 在图5中,改变基材与面板之间的间距而形成BPSG薄膜在基材上。 [0075] In FIG. 5, the change in the spacing between the substrate and the panel is formed on the BPSG film on the substrate. 薄膜是使用He、TEOS、TEB、TEPO作为制程气体于约550°C温度与约200托耳压力而被形成。 The film is the use of He, TEOS, TEB, TEPO as the process gas at about 550 ° C. And about 200 Torr pressure is formed. 当间距增加时,沉积速率降低约23. 169 A /min,其为用以计算出对于特定制程的一关联因子的线的斜率。 When the distance increases, the deposition rate decreases to about 23. 169 A / min, which is used to calculate the specific manufacturing process for a correlation factor of the slope of the line. 图4与图5的相当小差异是归因于升举机构的可变性、液体流变化、实验室温度等等。 Figures 4 and 5 is relatively small differences due to the lifting mechanism of variability, change fluid flow, temperature, etc. laboratory.

[0076] 根据沉积速率与基材及面板之间的间距的关联,以下将描述三点计算倾斜程序(three point counter-tilt)以调成基材支撑件表面的倾斜而改善均勻性,其中该关联是被建立用于牵涉的特定形式制程。 [0076] According to the spacing between the deposition rate associated with the base and the panel, the following three points will be described inclination calculation program (three point counter-tilt) to tune into the inclined surface of the substrate support to improve the uniformity, wherein the An association is being set up for a particular form of the process involved. 如图6的流程图100所示,在将基材支撑件定位于距离面板的一所希望间距之后,一层次形成于基材上(步骤10¾。在步骤104,量测层次厚度, 其可以在原位完成。图7显示一厚度图90的范例,该厚度图具有49个点以产生在基材上该层次的一厚度曲线。基材上三点92、94、96在位置上对应于升举板30上的三量测位置50以使用图3中测微计M来量测间距。该三点92、94、96典型地为接近基材边缘,且角度上相对于基材中心而大致上均勻地相隔开。例如,该三点92、94、96相对于基材中心隔开约120°,且每一者距离基材边缘有小于基材半径的10%的距离。 Shown, after the substrate support member positioned at a desired distance from the panel spacing, forming a hierarchy 100 in FIG. 6 is a flowchart of a substrate (step 10¾. In step 104, a thickness measurement level, which can be In situ complete. Figure 7 shows an example of a thickness of Fig. 90, the thickness map has 49 points to produce the level of a curve on the substrate thickness. 92,94,96 at three points on the substrate position corresponding to the rise Three measurement position 50 on the lift plate 30 in FIG. 3 using a micrometer to measure the distance M. The three 92,94,96 typically close to the edge of the substrate, and the angle with respect to the center of the substrate while substantially evenly spaced. For example, the center of the substrate relative to the three 92,94,96 spaced approximately 120 °, and each has a radius of less than 10% of the distance from the base edges of the substrate.

[0077] 请参阅图6,下一步骤106是计算该三点间的厚度差异。 [0077] Refer to Figure 6, the next step 106 is to calculate the difference in thickness between the three. 例如,点92是被选作为一参考位置,且计算参考点92与在剩下位置的其他点94、96之间的厚度差异。 For example, point 92 is selected as a reference position, and calculate the reference point 92 and the other 94, 96 points of difference between the thickness of the remaining positions. 在步骤108,厚度差异(点94与92之间及点96与92之间)通过沉积时间被分割以获得参考点92与剩下点94、96之间的沉积速率微分。 In order to obtain the reference point 92 and the rest of the deposition rate differential between points 94 and 96 in step 108, the thickness difference (between point 94 and point 92 between 96 and 92) is divided by the deposition time. 一先前决定的关联因子接着被用来将沉积速率微分转换成在剩下点94、96处之间距调整以改善均勻性(步骤110)。 Factors associated with a previously determined is then used to convert the deposition rate differential remaining 94, 96 at spaced points of adjustments to improve uniformity (step 110). 如果在剩下点的厚度大于在参考点92的厚度的话,则间距调整为正的以增加在剩下点处的基材支撑件与面板之间的间距。 If the point is greater than the thickness of the remaining thickness at the reference point 92, then the spacing adjustment is positive to increase the spacing between the remaining points of the substrate support member and the panel. 相反地,如果在剩下点的厚度小于在参考点92的厚度的话,则间距调整为负的以减少在剩下点处的基材支撑件与面板之间的间距。 Conversely, if the thickness is smaller than in the rest of the point 92 of the thickness of the reference point, then the spacing adjustment is negative to decrease the spacing between the remaining points of the substrate support member and the panel. 在步骤112,进行间距调整,且校正基材支撑件以对于所选择特定制程来形成改善均勻性的层次。 In step 112, where the pitch adjustment and correction of the substrate support with respect to the selection of a particular process to improve the uniformity of the level of form.

[0078] 关联因子正比于沉积速率对间距作图(如图4与图5)的斜率。 [0078] correlation factor proportional to the deposition rate on the pitch plotted (Figure 4 and Figure 5) slope. 亦即,关联因子正比于间距改变除以层次沉积厚度速率的比值。 That is, the correlation factor proportional to the pitch of the sediment thickness change rate divided by the level of the ratio. 典型地,关联因子将不等于斜率,但是将必须被修正以解释三点计算倾斜程序与间距调整之间的差异。 Typically, the association will not be equal to the slope factor, but would have to be modified to explain the three-point tilt calculate the difference between the program and the spacing adjustment. 为了获得图,基材向上或向下移动而不倾斜。 In order to obtain Figure, the substrate to move up or down without tilting. 然而,在三点计算倾斜程序中,在剩下点的其一者的间距相对于参考点被调整以将基材倾斜。 However, the inclination is calculated at three programs, at one point by a pitch relative to the rest of the reference point is adjusted to tilt the substrate. 因此,关联因子将等于一关联因子或常数乘以图斜率,其可以通过进行许多实验而经验性决定以获得关联因子而达到薄膜厚度均勻性。 Thus, the correlation factor equal to an associated factor or constant multiplied FIG slope, which can be carried out many experiments and empirical decided to get relevant factors to achieve film thickness uniformity.

[0079] 不同实验被进行以确定三点计算倾斜程序的重复性,以达到改善对于特定半导体制程形成在基材上层次的厚度均勻性。 [0079] Different experiments were performed to determine the three-point calculation process repeatability inclined, in order to achieve improved manufacturing process for a particular semiconductor substrate is formed at the level of thickness uniformity.
