A load-locked, single-wafer plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) system for deposition of silicon dioxide, silicon nitride, silicon oxynitride, and amorphous Si.  The system is equipped with in situ process monitoring and endpoint detection.  Film thickness, composition, and stress control, as well as excellent uniformity, are easily managed through a wide range of process chemistries and parameters.
