Paper Abstract

For chemically amplified EUV resists, secondary electrons derived from ionization events play a critical role in the sensitization of acid generators. In this study, we show the dependence of acid generation efficiency on dose rate (fluence per pulse duration) by using 61 nm free-electron laser (FEL) light irradiation. The wavelength of 61 nm (20.3 eV) is applied because single incident photon induces only single ionization event, in contrast to the 13.4 nm EUV photon that induces 4.2 ionization events on average. The acid yield efficiency has enhances with decreasing the dose rate. It is suggested that high density ionization enhances the multiple spur effect.
