Paper Abstract

AZTM BARLiTM II materials are used as highly absorptive bottom antireflective coatings (BARC) for i-line lithographic applications. The BARC formulations consist of polymer-bound dyes with the additives formulated in photoresist compatible solvents, containing none of monomeric chromophores, and showing excellent coating uniformity. We have continued to study the functional performance of the BARC materials on swing reduction, lithography, coating surface defect, thermal stability, forced aging behavior, etc. Strategy of formulations and recommendations on standard processing conditions will also be discussed.
