TL01 Tystar LPCVD Furnace

The Tystar Low-Pressure-Chemical-Vapor-Deposition (LPCVD) object consists of four horizontal sub-atmospheric furnace tubes that can process up to 6″ diameter silicon wafers. The furnaces are fully computer controlled and are configured to deposit doped and undoped polysilicon, silicon dioxide, and silicon nitride films. The object is capable of depositing films with wafer-to-wafer and within-wafer uniformity of better than 5%. This object was donated to UTD by the Von Ehr Foundation.

PD01/ PD02 Plasma-Therm 790 PECVD

PD01 is a  Plasma-Therm 790 PECVD tool  that is configured with 2% silane in helium to deposit high-quality silicon dioxide, silicon nitride, and amorphous silicon films at temperatures from 100 C to 300 C. The tool was donated to UTD in May 2004 by the Mykrolis Corporation. PD02 is also a Plasma-Therm 790 PECVD system that can deposit high quality silicon carbide, silicon oxide, silicon nitride films. The tool was purchased for the lab by Dr. Stuart Cogan in Fall 2013.

TC02 Ultratech/Cambridge NanoTech Savannah 100 Atomic Layer Deposition

The Atomic Layer Deposition system deposits thin films of dielectrics such as hafnium oxide, silicon oxide, and aluminum oxide. The tool can be configured for titanium oxide upon user request. The tool can easily switch from water to ozone precursor. Users may request additional training on the ozone generator.
