Abstract
A series of new polymers for 193 nm single layer resist based on maleic anhydride/cycloolefin systems with minimum amount of acrylate units were synthesized. In order to minimize the acrylate content, the cycloolefin moiety of the polymers was functionalized with side groups designed to either promotes adhesion to silicon substrate and/or impart the imaging functionality. All polymers were prepared by free-radical polymerization in moderate to high yields and were characterized by variety of techniques. The initial lithographic evaluation of the new resists was carried out. It was found that acrylates can be successfully replaced with appropriately substituted cycloolefins to provide good resolution. The etch resistance of the new materials generally improves with increase in cycloolefin content. The Onishi and Kunz type plots will be discussed.
