A novel alkaline-soluble silicon-containing copolymer for use in bilayer lithography has been developed. This copolymer (CVPVS)consists of p-vinylphenol and vinyltrimethylsilane and was prepared in a two-step process: anionic polymerization of a p-alkoxystyrene with vinyltrimethylsilane followed by ether cleavage of the alkoxy group. The copo-lymer used for lithographic application has a number average molecular weight of 2700 and shows very good solubility in a variety of organic solvents. CVPVS has nearly no absorption above 300 nm and at 248 nm its absorption is six times lower than that of a commercially available poly(p-vinylphenol). The silicon-containing photoresist (SPR) prepared from this copolymer and a diazoquinone photosensitizer is completely compatible with current resist processing.
