  • Patent number: 10854454
    Abstract: To restrain a side portion of a trench from being damaged by ion implantation. A method for manufacturing a semiconductor device comprises a stacking process, an ion implantation process, a heat treatment process, a groove forming process, and a first electrode forming process. In the stacking process, a p-type semiconductor layer is stacked on a first n-type semiconductor layer. In the ion implantation process, an n-type impurity or a p-type impurity is ion-implanted into a position on a surface of the p-type semiconductor layer. The position is away from a position where a groove is to be formed. In the heat treatment process, heat treatment is performed to activate the ion-implanted impurity so as to form an implanted region and to diffuse a p-type impurity in the p-type semiconductor layer into the first n-type semiconductor layer located below the implanted region so as to form a p-type impurity diffused region.
