  • Publication number: 20230317839
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a protection film having an opening and covering a semiconductor layer, which is formed on a side of a surface of a substrate, on an opposite side of the substrate. An insulating film containing silicon is used for the protection film. A gate electrode is formed in the opening and on a side of a side surface of the semiconductor layer which faces a direction. An insulating film containing metal element is formed between the side surface of the semiconductor layer and the gate electrode. The exposure of the side surface of the semiconductor layer to a gas for dry etching for forming of the opening is suppressed by the insulating film. Furthermore, contact and a short circuit between the gate electrode and the side surface of the semiconductor layer are suppressed. As a result, deterioration in the performance of the semiconductor device is suppressed.
