Plasma Etching book cover

Plasma Etching

An Introduction

Plasma etching plays an essential role in microelectronic circuit manufacturing. Suitable for researchers, process engineers, and graduate students, this book introduces the basic physics and chemistry of electrical discharges and relates them to plasma etching mechanisms. Throughout the volume the authors offer practical examples of process chemistry, equipment design, and production methods.

Audience
Scientists and engineers who work with plasma in microelectronics, fusion, and space technology; graduate students in these areas.

Reviews

  • "The subject matter is therefore well tuned to the needs of workers in the semiconductor industry, although it would also serve as an excellent textbook for a final undergraduate year or postgraduate course on the processing of semiconductor materials. This book is strongly recommended for the libraries of all universities and research laboratories working in the physical sciences."
    --AUSTRALIAN PHYSICIST


    The authors] have produced a comprehensive and very readable book that will be especially valuable to the scientist or engineer just entering the field. The emphasis is clearly on understanding fundamental phenomena rather than specific recipes, thus its utility will outlive the present generation of processes and equipment.
