TEL’s patented DCS function and conventional plasma treatment were applied on EUV PR to examine the effect of ion/radical loading and surface modification. The DCS function accelerates plasma selective deposition particularly on the top of EUV PR at 36nm pitch. The increment of EUV PR height secures etching budget and provides longer plasmas smoothing period. In addition, line roughness was also smoothed during area plasma selective deposition due to loading effect. In this study, our plasma treatment was able to improve PR roughness by 30% comparing to as-exposed litho and the performance was kept to the next oxide layer. Furthermore, an extra 13.7nm of PR was gained which enlarged the process windows of etching selectivity and plasma smoothing effect.
