This is a single-chamber tool for etching of a variety of materials. The chamber is configured as an ICP etching tool with 1000 W ICP power, 500 W RF substrate power, and RT - 80°C operation with back-side He cooling and an electrostatic chuck to maintain controlled surface temperatures during etching. This chamber has Cl2, BCl3, CF4, CHF3, SF6, Ar, N2, and O2 for gas sources and can be used to etch a variety of materials from SiO2 to metals to compound semiconductors. The chamber is evacuated with a 2000 lpm Osaka Vacuum magnetically levitated turbo pump, allowing for fast pump down.

The system is also equipped with a red laser monitoring system from Intellemetrics for more precise etch stop control.
