  • Patent number: 11374114
    Abstract: A high-k dielectric layer is formed over a semiconductor substrate having a first trench and a second trench. A barrier layer is formed over the high-k dielectric layer. A work function layer is deposited over the barrier layer, and is patterned and removed from the second trench, exposing the barrier layer at the second trench. A precursor is deposited selectively over the barrier layer in the second trench, and deposited over the work function layer in the first trench. The precursor selectively reacts with the barrier layer to selectively etch the barrier layer, and selectively reacts with the work function layer to selectively etch a top oxidized portion of the work function layer and deposit a protective layer. The reaction products between the precursor and the barrier layer, and the reaction products between the precursor and the work function layer are removed by using an inert gas.
