Development of Virtual Integrated Prototyping Simulation Environment for Plasma Chamber Analysis and Design (VIP-SEPCAD)
This paper describes a newly developed simulation environment for analysis and design of a plasma processing chamber based on first principles including complicated physical and chemical interactions of plasma, fluid dynamics of neutrals, and transport phenomena of particles. Capabilities of our simulator, named VIP-SEPCAD (Virtual Integrated Prototyping Simulation Environment for Plasma Chamber Analysis and Design), are demonstrated through a two dimensional simulation of an oxygen plasma chamber. VIP-SEPCAD can provide plasma properties such as spatiotemporal profiles of plasma density and potential, electron temperature, ion flux and energy, etc. By coupling neutral and particle transport models with a three moment plasma model, VIP-SEPCAD can also predict spatiotemporal profiles of chemically reactive species and particles exist in plasma.
