Alternatively, we tried a pseudo gas-chopping approach with a plasma chemistry based on octafluorocyclobutane and sulfur hexaflouride ([C.sub.4][F.sub.8]/S[F.sub.6]).
In the passivation cycle, the octafluorocyclobutane ([C.sub.4][F.sub.8]) gas flow rate was 85sccm.
DRIE involves a cyclical bombardment of chemical species (in this case, sulfur hexafluoride, SF6, and octafluorocyclobutane, C4F8).
The reactive gas that was used in this experiment was octafluorocyclobutane ([C.sub.4] [F.sub.8]) with a gas flow rate of 14 sccm.
