Paper Title:
Neutralization of Ion Beams for Reduction of Charging Damage in Plasma Etching
  Abstract

Neutral beams were proposed for plasma etching in order to reduce damage due to charging. We analyzed the efficiency of neutralization in a system proposed recently where a beam of ions was neutralized in the gas phase and in a set of narrow tubes. We studied surface neutralization as well as collisions of ions in the gas. In the case of collisions of ions with aperture walls, efficiency of neutralization was assumed to be 100%. We also investigated the influence of various parameters such as aperture length, tube diameter and initial ion energy on the efficiency of neutralization using a Monte Carlo code for ion motion simulation. In our calculations we used a well-established set of cross sections for argon.
