As shown in FIG. 1, the semiconductor structure 10 includes a first semiconductor wafer 12 and a second semiconductor wafer 14. As shown in FIG. 2, the first semiconductor wafer 12 and the second semiconductor wafer 14 are vertically bonded by hybrid bonding.


The first semiconductor wafer 12 includes a first semiconductor substrate 16 and a first inductance layer 18. The first inductance layer 18 is disposed on the first semiconductor substrate 16. The side of the first inductance layer 18 away from the first semiconductor substrate 16 has a first bonding surface 181. The first inductance layer 18 includes a first metal trace 20, a first interconnect structure 22 and a first insulating layer 24. The first insulating layer 24 covers the first metal trace 20. The first interconnect structure 22 is embedded in the first insulating layer 24. One end of the first interconnect structure 22 is electrically connected to the first metal trace 20, and the other end of the first interconnect structure 22 is exposed on the first bonding surface 181. Correspondingly, the second semiconductor wafer 14 includes a second semiconductor substrate 26 and a second inductance layer 28. The second inductance layer 28 is disposed on the second semiconductor substrate 26. The side of the second inductance layer 28 away from the second semiconductor substrate 26 has a second bonding surface 281. The second inductance layer 28 includes a second metal trace 30, a second interconnect structure 32 and a second insulating layer 34. The second insulating layer 34 covers the second metal trace 30. The second interconnect structure 32 is embedded in the second insulating layer 34. One end of the second interconnect structure 32 is electrically connected to the second metal trace 30, and the other end of the second interconnect structure 32 is exposed on the second bonding surface 281. The material of the first insulating layer 24 and the second insulating layer 34 is silicon dioxide, for example. The material of the first metal trace 20, the second metal trace 30, the first interconnect structure 22 and the second interconnect structure 32 is copper, for example. In an embodiment, the first interconnect structure 22 and the first metal trace 20 may be integrally formed; and the second interconnect structure 32 and the second metal trace 30 may be integrally formed.


Continue the above description. As shown in FIG. 2, hybrid bonding is performed on the first semiconductor wafer 12 and the second semiconductor wafer 14, so that the first bonding surface 181 (labeled in FIG. 1) of the first inductance layer 18 is bonded to the second bonding surface 281 (labeled in FIG. 1) of the second inductance layer 28. The first insulating layer 24 on the first bonding surface 181 and the second insulating layer 34 on the second bonding surface 281 form a first bond 36. The first interconnect structure 22 on the first bonding surface 181 and the second interconnect structure 32 on the second bonding surface 281 form a second bond 38.


In an embodiment, the first semiconductor wafer 12 and the second semiconductor wafer 14 may be planarized first when the hybrid bonding is performed, and then the planarized first bonding surface 181 of the first semiconductor wafer 12 and the planarized second bonding surfaces 281 of the second semiconductor wafer 14 are arranged face-to-face and aligned.

During the annealing, the metals in the first interconnect structure 22 and the second interconnect structure 32 contact and then diffuse each other due to thermal expansion to form a metal-to-metal bond. The corresponding first insulating layer 24 and second insulating layer 34 can also be bonded to each other at a specified temperature.
