Photoresists based on chalcogenide glasses for submicron lithography Conference Paper uri icon


  • It is shown that the photosensitivity of photoresists based on chalcogenide glasses can be increased drastically (1000 times and more) using excitation by pulsed radiation of excimer laser. A model is developed that explains the increase in sensitivity. The main advantages of chalcogenide photoresists are discussed and conclusions are drawn on the prospects of these resists for submicron photolithography.
