Paper Abstract

Double patterning process with ArF immersion lithography has been developed as one of the most promising candidate for hp32 node and beyond. However the complicated process flow and cost of ownership are the critical issue for this process. LELE (Litho-Etch-Litho-Etch) is the one of the standard process, but in order to reduce the process and cost, that LPLE(Litho-Process-Litho-Etch) process have been investigated as the alternative process. In these processes, organic Bottom-Anti-Reflective Coating (BARC) is used two times with same film in both 1st Litho and 2nd lithography process. In 2nd lithography process, resist pattern will be printed at space area where exposed and developed in 1st lithography process. Therefore, organic BARC needs to have process stability in photo and development step to keep good litho performance between 1st and 2nd lithography in LPLE process. This paper describes the process impact of 1st exposure and development for organic BARC, and the LPLE performance with optimized organic BARC will be discussed.
