Abstract

A radio-frequency CF4 plasma in reactive-ion etcher with parallel plate geometry is investigated in one dimension at a position space using the relaxation continuum model. The discharge with negative ions has the double layer similar in appearance to O2; the structure and mechanism are markedly changed as a function of driving frequency. The effect of driving frequency is numerically studied between 13.56 MHz and 200 MHz for 200 mTorr and 50 mTorr. In these studies, the plasma density is kept constant at approx. 1011 cm-3, considering the charged species CF3+, CF2+, CF+, C+, F+, F-, and electrons. The mean energy of charged particles is also discussed.
