Paper Abstract

This paper studies the etiemistry of image reversal (1R) systems based on 2,1,4- diazoquinone substituted trihydroxybenzophenone (THBP) , tetrahydroxybenzophenone (tetra-HBP), p-cumylphenol (PCP) and novolac resins (N). Results are investigated in depth as to their impact on the functional behavior of the IR resist. Both cross-linking and decarboxylation modes are studied , as they relate to energy to clear. It is shown that using cross-linking systems based on the above DAQ esters, a m/p novolac, and a bifunctional cross-linking agent of the type '2 wherein X = OH, the broadband energy required to effect cross-linking decreases in the order of PCP > N > tetra-HBP > THBP. The concentration of the afore- mentioned sensitizers was in all cases equimolar in terms of diazo content. Surprisingly, in decarboxylation IR, the exposure energy required to effect decarboxylation decreases in the order of tetra-HBP > THBP > N > PCP, essentially a complete reversal as compared with cross-linking type IR.
