30 June 1987 X-Ray Induced Damage In Boron Nitride, Silicon, And Silicon Nitride Lithography Masks
Author Affiliations +
Boron nitride membranes (produced through chemical vapor deposition of diborane and ammonia) have been exposed to synchrotron radiation and have showed severe degradation in optical properties after absorbing doses on the order of 200kJ/cm3. Damage kinetics are described as well as measurements made to identify the damage mechanism. Preliminary results on associated mechanical damage are also presented. Boron nitride membranes (produced through the pyrolysis of borazine), silicon nitride and silicon membranes exposed and tested in the same manner showed no such degradation.
