Paper Abstract

Irresistible Materials has previously introduced the HM340 and HM940 series of fullerene based spin-on carbon hardmasks, and reported on material characterization, including very high carbon content and high thermal stability. The materials have a low Ohnishi number providing high etch durability and the low hydrogen level allows for high-resolution etching without wiggling. In order to further increase thermal stability and etch resistance several new formulations are under development, including fullerene only hardmask materials.

Here we present the latest results for our more conventional HM940 series, avoiding the drain test issues encountered with higher concentration HM340 formulations, together with new and updated characterisation results for the more advanced formulations.
