Evidence from simulation linewidth measurements is presented which suggests that a type II diffusion front is moving through positive tone t-BOC material during post exposure bake. A steady increase in linespace of 50 nm/min is observed in IBM APEX-E and even faster rates can be found in Apex-M. The converse is observed in negative resist systems, which evidence slower linewidth dependencies. The simultaneous reaction and 3D deprotection dependent diffusion simulation was carried out with a massively parallel approach. In addition, two-dimensional diffusion effects were studied with a test structure obtained with a super resolution phase shift mask.
