Contrast Enhancement Material (CEM)
|Warning:||This page has not been released yet.|
Contrast enhancement is a microlithography technique which extends the practical limits of optical lithography systems. This improvement in resolution, depth of focus and reduced interference, allows the fabrication of new and denser integrated circuits without the required capital equipment investment
CEM is used on conjunction with photoresist to enhance it ability to resolve fine features. The following process steps should be performed after the soft bake step for the photoresist.
- Do your normal photo resist process through soft bake.
- Apply CEM 365iS at the CEE 100CB photoresist spinner using recipe #4
- Spread for 5 seconds at 500rpm
- Spin at 4000 rpm for 30 seconds
- Expose your sample
- Exposure times will need to be increased 10-30% from your standard resist exposure time
- Rinse your sample in water to remove CEM material
- ACS has a "DI Rinse 30 seconds" recipe
- Proceed with lithography as normal
- There are currently no process SOPs defined for this chemical.
