Provided is a method for manufacturing a dual gate in a semiconductor device. The method includes forming a gate insulating layer and a gate conductive layer on a semiconductor substrate, forming a diffusion barrier layer on the gate conductive layer, forming a barrier metal layer on the diffusion barrier layer, depositing a first gate metal layer on the barrier metal layer, forming a metal nitride barrier layer on a surface of the first gate metal layer by supplying nitrogen (N2) plasma on the first gate metal layer, forming a second gate metal layer on the metal nitride barrier layer, and forming a hard mask layer on the second gate metal layer.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
