    A study is performed to obtain insight in etch- profile tailoring of high aspect ratio trenches (2 μm wide and 40 μm deep) to achieve void-free refilling with LPCVD SiRN. The trench profile obtained with Bosch DRIE is the most important factor determining formation of voids. Various Bosch recipes are characterized with respect to profile determining features and its applicability in void-free refilling.
