Abstract

The damage in semiconductor structures caused by high energy processes for the deposition of silicon nitride (Si3N4) is avoided by the use of ultraviolet light in a photochemical deposition operation involving SiH4 and NH3 in which no high energy ions are produced and, in turn, subsequent annealing to overcome high energy ion damage is not required.
