Semiconductor devices including semiconductor junctions and semiconductor field effect transistors that exploit the straining of semiconductor materials to improve device performance are provided. Also described are methods for making semiconductor structures. Dislocation defect-free epitaxial grown structures that are embedded into a semiconductor base are provided. The epitaxial structures can extend beyond the surface of the semiconductor base and terminate at a faceted structure. The epitaxial structures are formed using a multilayer growth process that provides for continuous transitions between adjacent layers.

A process is used to form a protective layer to cover a divot between two regions of a semiconductor material. During etching processes, the protective layer protects the divot to be etched away and reduces material loss of a Silicon (Si)-shallow trench isolation (STI) substrate. A selective coverage is provided to protect the height of the Si-STI substrate and an Si-STI interface. A desirable geometry can be obtained for forming a silicon germanium (SiGe)layer with uniform thickness near the divot.

A method of manufacturing a fin field effect transistor is provided. A double spacer protective layer comprising an outer spacer (the first spacer) and an inner spacer (the second spacer) is formed on both sides of the gate, and the thickness of the outer spacer can be adjusted to accurately control the distance between the source/drain ion implantation area and the channel, so as to solve the problem of the hot carrier injection effect caused by the distance being too close between the channel and the source/drain area; in addition, the outer spacers and the inner spacers can be formed by only two film deposition and etching processes without adding a photolithography mask, which can effectively prevent the contact between the gate and the source/drain, so as to substantially reduce the parasitic capacitance.

The present invention provides a method for forming a cobalt barrier layer and a metal interconnection process. The method is performed on a surface of a semiconductor device substrate on which metal interconnection lines and an inter-line dielectric layer are formed, and comprises: depositing a dielectric material film on a surface of the inter-line dielectric layer by atomic layer deposition, to densify the surface of the inter-line dielectric layer; removing the deposited dielectric material film, to expose the metal interconnection lines and the densified surface of the inter-line dielectric layer; selectively depositing cobalt on surfaces of the metal interconnection lines to form a cobalt barrier layer. In the present invention, deposition selectivity of cobalt on surfaces of the metal interconnection lines and the inter-line dielectric layer is improved, thus reducing leakage current between metal interconnection lines and improving yield and reliability of the product.

Techniques for measuring and testing a semiconductor wafer during semiconductor device fabrication include designating a test area on the top surface of the wafer and etching a first rectangular trench and a second rectangular trench on the top surface of the wafer in the test area. The trenches are oriented such that a length of the first trench is perpendicular to a length of the second trench, and positioned such that the length of the first trench, if extended, intersects the length of the second trench. A silicon-germanium compound is deposited into the first trench and the second trench, and a test pad is removed from the test area of the wafer. The test pad includes a side surface where both the first trench and the second trench are exposed. The side surface of the test pad is scanned with a transmission electron microscope to take measurements of the silicon-germanium.
