Application: Substrate transfer mechanism to reduce back-side substrate contact (Patent ID: US20230420279A1)

The patent filed by Applied Materials Inc. describes a substrate processing system with a processing chamber that includes a susceptor with a groove and a substrate support structure with carrier lift pins. The system is designed to efficiently regulate the temperature of substrates during processing. The chamber also includes stacked holders with curved inner portions and support members made of quartz material, along with a heating module and vent passages for laminar gas flow.

Additionally, the system involves a transfer chamber, a transfer chamber robot, and a factory interface loading station with a loading station robot for substrate transfer. The stacked holders are configured to support carriers made of ceramic material, and a lift mechanism controls their elevation within the chamber. The pedestal in the chamber has a heat transfer element sealed with a circular metallic over plate and passages for fluid flow. Locating pins and alignment pads are used to define the outer edge location of carriers and maintain proper alignment during processing, ensuring efficient and precise substrate processing within the system.
