Paper Abstract

Negative tone images have been produced directly in glow discharge deposited amorphous silicon hydride by selective gallium-ion implantation. Like crystalline silicon, amorphous silicon exhibits a greatly reduced etch rate in aqueous caustic solutions when implanted with doses in excess of about 1013 Ga ions/cm2. The amorphous silicon behaves as a negative resist with a threshold sensitivity of about 1 pC/cm2. This material is particularly attractive as a possible masking material for ultra-violet light due to its high absorption properties in this wavelength region, low relative cost and the ease by which it can be deposited on a wide range of materials.
