Paper Abstract

The application of a new organic anti-reflective coating layer, "ARC-XL" from Brewer Science Inc. is described for high resolution metallisation lithography. The "ARC-XL" is soluble in positive resist developer and is removed in the same process step as the exposed resist so that particular attention is paid to "ARC-XL" bake conditions. The enhanced process latitude to be gained using "ARC-XL" with a high temperature resist is compared to latitude without "ARC-XL" by both electron microscopy and electrical linewidth measurement. "PROLITH" simulations confirm the enhanced process latitude to be gained using "ARC-XL". Further modelling shows resist sidewall profiles with and without "ARC-XL" as a function of stepper focus and exposure.
