    In this study, we have developed a technique for forming GaN through-substrate vias (TSV) using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) dry etching with a gas mixture of Cl2/BCl3. A 91 μm-deep GaN via-hole having a diameter of 80 μm was successfully formed at a high etching rate of 1.5 μm/min and a high etching selectivity of 35. We discuss pillar formation, RIE lag, loading effects and etch uniformity in high-rate ICP etching, which are critical issues related to the yield of via-hole fabrication. Finally, we investigated the effect of GaN TSVs on heat dissipation by thermal simulation.
