Paper Abstract

For the next generation lithography (NGL), several technologies have been proposed to achieve the 22nm-node devices and beyond. Extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography is one of the candidates for the next generation lithography. In EUV light source development, low power is one of the critical issue because of the low throughput, and another issue is Out of Band (OoB) light existing in EUV light. OoB is concerned to be the cause of deterioration for the lithography performance. In order to avoid this critical issue, we focused on development of the resist top coat material with OoB absorption property as Out of Band Protection Layer (OBPL). We designed this material having high absorbance around 240nm wavelength and high transmittance for EUV light. And this material aimed to improve sensitivity, resolution and LWR performance.
