A novel method has been developed to improve the dry etching selectivity of aluminum alloy with respect to photoresist by implanting ions into the patterned photoresist. The selectivity becomes 7.5, which is 5 times higher than that of the unimplanted case. Accordingly, this technology is very promising for fabricating multi-level interconnections in sub-half micron LSIs.
