Paper Abstract

Cutting of conductors using laser-induced chemical etching as well as deposition of conducting links by laser photolysis have been demonstrated. These operations form the basis for a laser microchemistry tool useful for repair or modification of microcircuits. With our prototype system, we have been able to photolytically deposit conducting lines with resistivities of 250 μohm-cm. Because the process is photolytic, deposition can be initiated even over transparent areas, and film growth is well controlled.
