Unstable etching of Si(110) with potassium hydroxide

Moktadir, Z and Sato, K (2001) Unstable etching of Si(110) with potassium hydroxide Phys. Rev. B, 64, p. 33309.

Record type: Article


We present experimental data for the morphological evolution of Si(110) etched with potassium hydroxide. The observed results are interpreted using a continuum equation. The results reveal the presence of unstable etching which leads to the formation of a columnar structure on the surface. The early stage of the formation of this columnar structure can be explained by a linear theory. This instability is caused by anisotropic surface tension.
