  • Patent number: 10923309
    Abstract: A method for improving the beam current for certain ion beams, and particularly germanium and argon, is disclosed. The use of argon as a second gas has been shown to improve the ionization of germane, allowing the formation of a germanium ion beam of sufficient beam current without the use of a halogen. Additionally, the use of germane as a second gas has been shown to improve the beam current of an argon ion beam.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: November 1, 2018
    Date of Patent: February 16, 2021
    Assignee: Applied Materials, Inc.
    Inventors: Bon-Woong Koo, Ajdin Sarajlic, Ronald Johnson, Nunzio V. Carbone, Peter Ewing, Mervyn Deegan

  • Publication number: 20200343071
    Abstract: Provided herein are approaches for increasing efficiency of ion sources. In some embodiments, an apparatus, such as an ion source, may include a chamber housing having a first end wall and a second end wall, and an extraction plate coupled to at least one of the first end wall and the second end wall. The extraction plate may include an extraction aperture. The apparatus may further include a tubular cathode extending between the first end wall and the second end wall.
