  • Patent number: 10756507
    Abstract: A process of forming a semiconductor optical device is disclosed. The semiconductor optical device provides a waveguide structure accompanied with a heater for varying a temperature of the waveguide structure. The process includes steps of: (a) forming a striped mask on a semiconductor substrate; (b) selectively growing a dummy layer on the semiconductor substrate; (c) removing the patterned mask; (d) burying the dummy layer by a supplemental layer; (e) exposing a portion of the dummy layer by etching a portion of the supplemental layer; (f) and removing the dummy layer by immersing the dummy layer within a solution that shows an etching rate for the dummy layer enough faster than an etching rate for the supplemental layer and the substrate so as to leave a void in a region the dummy layer had existed.

  • Patent number: 7919415
    Abstract: A process of manufacturing a semiconductor device includes the steps of forming a stacked structure of a first III-V compound semiconductor layer containing In and having a composition different from InP and a second III-V compound semiconductor layer containing In. The second III-V compound semiconductor layer is formed over the first III-V compound semiconductor layer and growing an InP layer at regions adjacent the stacked structure to form a stepped structure of InP. The process further includes the step of wet-etching the stepped structure and the second III-V compound semiconductor layer using an etchant containing hydrochloric acid and acetic acid to remove at least the second III-V compound semiconductor layer.
