Article Preview

Plasma-generation and control technologies for meters-scale ultra-large-area RF plasma sources have been developed with multiple low-inductance antenna (LIA) modules, as a promising candidate of ultra-large area and high-density (1011-1012 cm-3) plasma sources for next-generation large-area processing. The present technologies are based on principle of multiple operation and integrated control of LIA modules, which enables effective control of power deposition profiles and hence the plasma uniformity over meters-scale large area for processing. This paper presents issues in designing ultra-large-area plasma sources to demonstrate feasibility of the uniform sources with 3m x 3m scales to meet requirements in the next-generation processes.
