As the semiconductor industry continues to follow Moore's Law by continually shrinking linewidths, DUV lithographic capacity is increasing. This greater capacity has increased the use of 248nm DUV lithography for all levels particularly applications such as metal and implant layers. Smaller features have required that more advanced implantation techniques be employed. These include greater control of implant depth, gradient, and lateral ion movement. These tighter requirements on the implant process naturally necessitate advanced requirements on the photoresists used in these processes. This paper will discuss the design criteria necessary to develop an advanced DUV resist for a variety of implant layer sand will show resist performance for these applications.
