We present a comprehensive study of the properties of SiNx layers deposited by PECVD correlating refractive index, mechanical stress, deposition rate, N/Si ratio, H-incorporation as function of the deposition parameters such SiH4 flow, RF power, LF/HF powers ratio and deposition temperature. © 2010 IEEE.
