The conformality of ALD growth in narrow trenches is studied by using a long narrow lateral channel fabricated on a silicon wafer. The propagation of ALD growth in the channel is modeled by a diffusion process. The surface reaction is described by dynamic Langmuir adsorption. The film growth is calculated by solving the diffusion equation with surface reactions. Measured thickness distribution gives the equilibrium constant of adsorption and the sticking coefficient. Also the effect of channel narrowing due to film deposition is included in the model.
