Abstract
We present the characterization of a dry-etching process for high-contrast TiO2/SiO2 distributed Bragg reflectors, by inductively coupled plasma reactive ion etching, focusing on the etch rate and the etch selectivity. Photoresists and metals as etch masks were investigated. An excellent etch profile using an indium tin oxide mask was obtained, with an etch rate of >80 nm/min at a pressure of 6 mTorr. The experiments were developed for structuring Fabry-Pérot filters for tunable optical sensor arrays.
