Chemically Amplified Molecular Photoresist for High-Resolution Lithography


Scientific Achievement

Users from Intel collaborated with staff from the Molecular Foundry and the ALS to create a new approach to photoresist that achieves both high-resolution and sensitivity.

Significance and Impact

Current photoresist designs have a tradeoff between resolution and sensitivity but this approach could lead to resists capable of patterning features at the molecular level with high sensitivity.
