    Abstract

    A new single wafer epitaxial silicon reactor, the Epsilon One, is characterized by automated cassette-to-cassette wafer handling, rapid thermal cycle, and high deposition rate for wafers up to 150 mm diameter. This paper describes the reactor, and its results in terms of epi thickness and doping uniformity, epi/substrate transition width, and epi defect density.
