Plasma Technology for Advanced Devices

US patent 5,385,633:
Laser-assisted photothermal chemical etching reactions on silicon occur in these ambients when the incident fluence from an excimer laser at 248 nm exceeds the melt threshold (approximately 0.75 J/cm.sup.2). When incident fluence exceeds the ablation threshold (approximately 2.2 J/cm.sup.2) an undesirable, increased surface roughness is observed.
