The high temperature inside of reactor is used to detonate the chemical reaction of metal-organic and deposit a layer of semiconductor crystalline film from the reactant on substrate. In order to deposit the film more uniformly, the seal、flow rate and temperature of the MODVC equipment needs to be controlled accurately.
The characteristics of global search and fast convergence of differential evolution are implemented in this study as algorithm for optimization. Several test functions are first applied to verify the performance and the correctness of the developed optimization program. Then commercial computer-aided engineering software Ansys Fluent and ICEM CFD are utilized for design of showerhead of MOCVD. The design variables include location and diameter of air vents、the distance between substrate and showerhead. The goal is to gain the uniformity of film deposition. From the results of this study, problems in the development process can be reduced or avoided by integration of differential evolution algorithm with simulation of flow field and thin film deposition. It can increase the yield rate and improve the competitiveness in developing MOCVD facility.
