Paper Abstract

An overview of a model for aging of positive photoresists is presented. Photoresist samples were held at different temperatures for varying periods of time. Physical and spectral properties were monitored to determine rates of change as a function of temperature. Since the resists contain photoactive diazonaphthoquinones, which slowly decompose when heated, photospeed and nitrogen evolution were measured to obtain information about the decomposition rates of the photoactive compounds. Kinetics of change of coating thickness, viscosity, contrast, unexposed thickness loss, Dill parameters, and CO2 evolution were also determined to better understand the aging process in resists.
