10 6/K Introduction silicon carbide (SiC) in microelectronics industry possible. It is highly oxidation resistant even at very high temperatures. ); the heating of these materials at very high temperature in the electric arc furnace results in SiC precipitating to the bottom of the crucible. SiC film can be used as a passivation layer in micromachining for the underlying silicon substrate. The patterning of SiC can be easily done by shadow mask using dry etching technique. 5. Polysilicon: Polysilicon has become a principal material in surface micromachining.

The temperature control is critical (~1600°C). The substrate holder is also kept at certain temperature (~400°C–800°C) where the substrate is kept. The vapour is mixed with certain stoichiometric ratio. If temperature somehow changes, then the partial pressure of precursor molecule also changes, which will degrade the growth rate. So, precise control of temperature is essential in the MBE process. Each orifice is operated with a shutter, which must be interrupted to control the composition and doping of the film.

5 Set-up of molecular beam epitaxy. 2 Chemical Vapour Deposition CVD is attractive for metallization because it offers coatings that are conformal, has good step coverage and can coat a large number of wafers at a time. The basic CVD set-up is the same as that used for the deposition of dielectrics and polysilicon. Low-pressure CVD is capable of producing conformal step coverage over a wide range of topographical profiles, often with lower electrical resistivity than that from PVD. 1 Atmospheric Pressure CVD (APCVD) Epitaxial films are single-layer film.
