오존수를 이용한 감광막 제거 공정에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2004.11.01


In this study, photoresist stripping in semiconductor or LCD (liquid crystal display) fabrication processes using DIO, was investigated. In order to obtain the high PR stripping efficiency of DIO. we have developed new ozone-generating system with high ozone concentration and ozone-resolving system with high contact ratio. In this study, we obtained ozone gas concentrations of 11 % by new ozone-generating system, ozone-resolving efficiency of 99.5 % and maximum solubility of 130 ppm in deionized water. We applied the newly designed equipments to photoresist stripping processes and obtained similar results to SPM(sulfuric-peroxide mixture) process characteristics.
