Leonard J Olmer: Silicon dioxide deposition method using a magnetic field and both sputter deposition and plasma-enhanced CVD. AT&T Bell Laboratories, R B Anderson, February 18, 1992: US05089442 (170 worldwide citation)

In plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) of silicon dioxide on a substrate, voids and discontinuities are reduced by first depositing silicon dioxide in a sputter each chamber (22) in which a magnetic field is produced within the rf plasma for depositing the silicon dioxide. Simultaneous ...

Earl R Lory, Leonard J Olmer: Anisotropic deposition of silicon dioxide. AT&T Bell Laboratories, R B Anderson, May 7, 1991: US05013691 (170 worldwide citation)

In a radio-frequency plasma deposition reactor (10), SiO.sub.2 is deposited from a source (16) of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS). The deposition is made to be anisotropic, that is, to be deposited preferentially on horizontal surfaces, by use in the deposition atmosphere of a constituency such as NH.sub.3 ...
