Issues of rapid thermal processing (RTP) system design and process applications are reviewed. Temperature measurement is the most important and limiting factor in current RTP systems. Problems related to the temperature measurement and control and potential solutions are discussed. Process uniformity control is another important issue in RTP system design. Reactor chamber design, selection and arrangement of heat source, as well as issues related to dislocation generation, patterned and doped wafer, and ramp-up (down) thennal cycle are considered. Experimental results (RTO, RTCVD silicon nitride and polysilicon) based on an in-house RTP system developed in our laboratory are taken as examples to demonstrate the process applications and system requirements for single wafer processing.
