Paper Abstract

Recent experimental results indicate that current resists lack the ability to simultaneously meet the 2005 International Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) goals for Resolution, Line Edge Roughness (LER) and Sensitivity (RLS). This RLS tradeoff has also been demonstrated through modeling work. Here we use a model to explore the impact on the RLS tradeoff of anisotropic acid diffusion and increased quantum yield. We show that both these effects can significantly improve the RLS tradeoff.
