Polysilane Bilayer UV Lithography

View publication


Polysilanes are a class of Si-Si backbone polymers that have been demonstrated to function as high resolution positive resists with excellent uv sensitivity. These materials have a unique photochemistry with high quantum yields and nonlinear bleaching. Polysilanes serve as excellent RIE barriers for bilevel resist applications because a protective layer of Si02 is formed during exposure to an oxygen plasma. Aliphatic polysilanes have been applied to full wafer mid-uv lithography with 0.75/im resolution. © 1984 SPIE.
