Hexachlorodisilane, Cas #13465-77-5, Cl6Si2, molecular weight 268.89. Hexachlorodisilane is a clear coloress, corrosive liquid, known as HCDS. HCDS is used as a spacer in litho for double, triple, and quadruple pattering (pitch doubling etc.). A manufacturer can use HCDS as a sidewall spacer in advanced logic transistors- planar structures. Also used as representative material for all advanced spacers (amino silane types- LTO and SAM)
In the semiconductor industry, a manufacturer of fiber optics and solar energy products can benefit from using hexachlorodisilane. HCDS is also used as a reducing reagent and is the most powerful deoxygenating agent. ALD and CVD methods help develop Silicon Nitride and Silicon Dioxide. Hexachlorodisilane is a chemical used in the ALD process which will help increase the production of Silicon Nitride and Silicon Dioxide.
