Paper Abstract

The absorption properties of the well-known coumarin dyes are evaluated at the 436 nm g line for PMMA bilayer systems. Their properties are compared with those of other commercial products. The main requirements to be met are : good solubility in PMMA solutions, an absorption spectrum adapted to bilayer processes and thermal stability. Several azo dyes have been selected from among a large number of compounds and are proposed as an advantageous alternative to coumarin dyes. The implementation of one of these selected dyes in a bilayer process is given as an example. A good dimensional control is obtained for 1 μm lines over critical topographies.
