Abstract: The influence was studied of the concentration of ammonium fluoride (NH4F) on the etch rates of silicon nitride films deposited by the mercury-sensitized photochemical vapour deposition method. The composition of the buffered HF was varied between 0 and 40 weight percent (wt%) NH4F with 2 to 12wt°/0 hydrofluoric acid (HF).The etch rates as a function of buffered HF composition were measured for films deposited under various process parameters, viz. reactant gas ratio, substrate temperature and chamber pressure. The results of etch rates as a function of process parameters were correlated to variations in material density and silicon content (Si/N ratio) in the films.
