Cryogenic Etching - Lam Research

Cryogenic Etching

Low temperature, cryogenic etching enables the use of new, novel chemistries to deliver increased high aspect ratio etch capability. Cryogenic delivers enhanced etch rates, vertical high aspect ratio profiles, and reduces the environmental impact of the etching process.

Lam’s cryogenic dielectric etch technology is compatible with Lam’s popular Flex® dielectric etch technology and Vantex® reactive ion etch systems on the Sense.i® platform – enabling customers to easily leverage and expand on investment in their existing infrastructure.
