US 9,515,166: Selective Atomic Layer Deposition Process Utilizing Patterned Self-Assembled Monolayers for 3D Structure Semiconductor Applications

Methods for forming fin structure with desired materials formed on different locations of the fin structure using a selective deposition process for three dimensional (3D) stacking of fin field effect transistor (FinFET) for semiconductor chips are provided. In one embodiment, a method of forming a structure with desired materials on a substrate includes forming a patterned self-assembled monolayer on a circumference of a structure formed on a substrate, wherein the patterned self-assembled monolayer includes a treated layer formed among a self-assembled monolayer, and performing an atomic layer deposition process to form a material layer predominantly on the self-assembled monolayer from the patterned self-assembled monolayer.
