Yu, Anguang, Liu, Heping, Blinco, James P., Jack, Kevin S., Leeson, Michael, Younkin, Todd R., Whittaker, Andrew K., & Blakey, Idriss (2010) Patterning of tailored polycarbonate based non-chemically amplified resists using extreme ultraviolet lithography. Macromolecular Rapid Communications, 31(16), pp. 1449-1455.
A series of high-performance polycarbonates have been prepared with glass-transition temperatures and decomposition temperatures that are tunable by varying the repeat-unit chemical structure. Patterning of the polymers with extreme UV lithography has been achieved by taking advantage of direct photoinduced chain scission of the polymer chains, which results in a molecular-weight based solubility switch. After selective development of the irradiated regions of the polymers, feature sizes as small as 28.6 nm have been printed and the importance of resist-developer interactions for maximizing image quality has been demonstrated.
