  4. E-beam Lithography
  5. Holography
    • For 1-D and 2-D gratings with 220nm nominal period, available on substrates up to 1 inch square.
    • Recipes for silicon substrates are provided, and have been translated to other substrates by users.
    • Datasheets are provided with starting recipes and usage info.
  6. Edge-Bead Removal
    • Edge photoresist removal methods needed for clamp-based etchers
    • Improves resolution for contact lithography

Photolithography Chemicals/Materials

  1. Underlayers
    • These are used beneath resists for both adhesive purposes and to enable bi-layer lift-off profiles for use with photoresist.
    • Datasheets are provided.
  2. Anti-Reflection Coatings:
    • The Photoresist Recipes section contains recipes using these materials.
    • Bottom Anti-Reflection Coatings (BARC) are used in the stepper systems, underneath the resists to eliminate substrate reflections that can affect resolution and repeatability for small, near resolution limited, feature sizes.
    • Datasheets are provided for reference on use of the materials.
  3. Contrast Enhancement Materials (CEM)
    • The Photoresist Recipes section contains recipes using these materials.
    • Used for resolution enhancement. Not for use in contact aligners, typically used on I-Line Steppers.
    • Datasheets provided with usage info.
  4. Adhesion Promoters
    • These are used to improve wetting of photoresists to your substrate.
    • Datasheets are provided on use of these materials.
  5. Low-K Spin-on Dielectrics
  6. Developers and Removers
    • Datasheets provided for reference.
    • Remover and Photoresist Strippers are used to dissolve PR during lift-off or after etching.

General Photolithography Techniques

  • HMDS Process for Improving Adhesion
    • Use these procedures if you are finding poor adhesion PR lifting-off), or for chemicals (like BHF) that attack the PR adhesion interface strongly.
  • Edge-Bead Removal Techniques
    • These techniques are required for loading full-wafers into etchers that use top-side clamps, to prevent photoresist from sticking to the clamp (and potentially destroying your wafer).
    • For contact lithography, this improves the proximity of the mask plate and sample, improving resolution. For some projection systems, such as the Maskless Aligner, EBR can help with autofocus issues.
  • Photoresist reflow (MicroChem), to create slanted sidewalls or curved surfaces.
