This book has been written as part of a series of scientific books being published by Plenum Press. The scope of the series is to review a chosen topic in each volume. To supplement this information, the abstracts to the most important references cited in the text are reprinted, thus allowing the reader to find in-depth material without having to refer to many additional publications. This volume is dedicated to the field of dry (plasma) etching, as applied in silicon semiconductor processing. Although a number of books have appeared dealing with this area of physics and chemistry, these all deal with parts of the field. This book is unique in that it gives a compact, yet complete, in-depth overview of fundamentals, systems, processes, tools, and applications of etching with gas plasmas for VLSI. Examples are given throughout the fundamental sections, in order to give the reader a better insight in the meaning and magnitude of the many parameters relevant to dry etching. Electrical engineering concepts are emphasized to explain the pros and cons of reactor concepts and excitation frequency ranges. In the description of practical applications, extensive use is made of cross-referencing between processes and materials, as well as theory and practice. It is thus intended to provide a total model for understanding dry etching. The book has been written such that no previous knowledge of the subject is required. It is intended as a review of all aspects of dry etching for silicon semiconductor processing.
Reviews: Both the present and past president of the California Carpet Cleaning Institute have endorsed this book. Ralph Nader's Cal-Perg organization recommended this book. Robert Selby's Bio: Robert Selby has owned a carpet installing and cleaning business for over 14 years. He conducts classes in the care and treatment of carpets as well. He has bought, installed and cleaned almost every type of carpet there is. This book is a quick summary of his experience and advice. Author Comments: Carpeting in the average home is the third most expensive investment that the average homeowner undertakes. This book is designed to save you from making expensive mistakes in your carpeting decisions. Written by an expert in the industry, this book tells you how carpets are made and how you can avoid making big purchasing mistakes and how to care for the carpet once you get it.
