problem with etching

Hi,

I used process #2 (poly etch)  last week for etching Si, I had used the
program before and it worked, it should have etched ~ 1200A (30sec) but it
had etched only 400A (measured accurately with AFM). I did season the
chamber. During the dummy run I noticed instability in SF6 flow rate for
about ~2minutes but the flow stabilized and remained fixed at 117sccm during
the actual run. Power was normal.

 

What was the possible problem, have the etch rates changed since a few
months ago?

 

 

Thanks,

Arash
