Water-based immersion lithography using ArF illumination is able to provide optical solutions as far as the 45-nm node, but is not able to achieve the 38-or 32-nm nodes as currently defined. Achieving these lithographic nodes will require new, higher refractive index fluids to replace the water used in first-generation immersion systems. We have developed a(More)
Photolithography at 157 nm requires development of new photoresists that are highly transparent at this wavelength. Transparent fluoropolymer platforms have been identified which also possess other materials properties required for chemically amplified imaging and aqueous development. Polymers of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), a fluoroalcohol-substituted(More)
The design ofan organic material satisfying all ofthe requirements for a single layer photolithography resist at 157 nm is a formidable challenge. All known resists used for optical lithography at 193 nm or longer wavelengths are too highly absorbing at 157 nm to be used at film thicknesses greater than-9O nm. Our goal has been to identify potential, new(More)
Twenty-two tricyclo[4.2.1.0 2,5 ]non-7-ene (TCN) or 3-oxatricyclononene monomers, having fluorinated or nonfluorinated substituents on the four-membered rings, were prepared by cycloaddition reactions of functionalized olefins with norbornadiene or quadricyclane. Radical polymerizations with tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and/or TFE and acrylates provided(More)
We have developed a family of 157 nm resists that utilize fluorinated terpolymer resins composed of 1) tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), 2) a norbornene fluoroalcohol (NBFOH), and 3) t-butyl acrylate (t-BA). TFE incorporation reduces optical absorbance at 157 nm, while the presence of a norbornene functionalized with hexafluoroisopropanol groups contributes to(More)
We have examined the crystal structures and structural phase transitions of the deuterated, partially deuterated and hydrogenous organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite methyl ammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) using time-of-flight neutron and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction. Near 330 K the high temperature cubic phases transformed to a body-centered tetragonal(More)
During the past year the probability that 157 nm lithography will precede next generation lithographies such as EUV or EPL has increased, partly due to encouraging advances in the design of polymeric materials, which have sufficient transparency at 157 nm to serve as platforms for single layer photoresists. We have identified several fluorinated resins(More)
The oxygen isotope effect on the superconducting transition temperature (alpha(o)) varies as a function of x in La2-xSrxCuO(4) and La2-xBaxCuO(4), with the maximum alpha(o) values (alpha(o) >/= 0.5) found for x near 0.12. This unusual x dependence implies that the isotope effect is influenced by proximity to the Abma --> P4(2)/ncm structural phase(More)
