This paper focuses attention on advantage of oxygen radical oxidation by microwave-excited high-density Kr/O2 plasma for improving disadvantages of conventional thermal oxidation process using H2O and/or O2 molecule, and demonstrates that Kr/O2 plasma oxidation process can improve thickness variation on shallow-trench isolation and integrity of silicon oxide not only on (100) surface but also on (111) surface compared to those of conventional thermal oxidation process.
