|Abstract||A method is proposed to prepare ultrathin silicon oxynitride films for gate dielectrics used in deep submicron metal–oxide–semiconductor field effect transistor device structures, namely plasma immersion N implantation into SiO2 films. Plasma immersion implantation pulse voltages in the range 200–1000 V, and fluences from 1016 to 1017Ncm22 were implanted into thermally grown SiO2 films, with thicknesses between 3 and 6 nm. The areal densities of N and O in the resulting oxynitride films were determined by nuclear reaction analysis, before and after annealing in high-vacuum. N, O, and Si profiles in the films were determined with subnanometric depth resolution by medium energy ion scattering. The results indicate that plasma immersion ion implantation allows for shallow and controlled deposition of significant amounts of nitrogen ~up to 3.8 nm of equivalent Si3N4 thickness!. Implantation is accompanied by moderate damage at the oxynitride/Si interface which can be recovered by thermal annealing.
