Superconformal Silver Deposition using KSeCn Derivatized Substrates



B C. Baker, C Witt, Daniel Wheeler, Daniel Josell, Thomas P. Moffat


Superconformal filling of sub-micrometer trenches was achieved using substrates that were catalyzed with KSeCn prior to metal deposition in a catalyst-free, silver-cyanide electrolyte. The degree of superfill was found to be dependent on the time the specimen spent in the KSeCn-containing solution prior to electrodeposition. Longer derivitization times correspond to higher initial catalyst coverages. The feature filling resullts were consistent with the Curvature Enhanced Accelerator Coverage Mechanism of superconformal deposition.
