We have developed an organic-inorganic hybrid resist platform featuring versatile ex-situ control of its performance by incorporating inorganic elements using vapor-phase infiltration (VPI) into standard organic resists. With poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-AlOx hybrid as a model composition we unveiled controllability of the critical exposure dose, contrast (as high as ~30), and etch resistance; estimated Si etch selectivity over ~300, demonstrating high aspect ratio ~17 with ~30 nm resolution Si fin-structures. Building upon the demonstration of PMMA-AlOx hybrid resist, we expanded our material portfolio to a high sensitivity resist and other inorganic moieties. We present preliminary results obtained from the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography dose tests conducted on corresponding infiltrated hybrids and optimization of infiltration with the help of transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
