Brewer Science Presents New Materials and Process Innovation at SPIE Advanced Lithography

Feb 25, 2013

February 25, 2013 – Brewer Science, inventor of ARC® anti-reflective coatings and the OptiStack® system, continues to deliver new versatile materials and process solutions that extend the boundaries of advanced lithography.

“Brewer Science is committed to providing flexible process solutions designed to fit each customer’s specific requirements. This allows our customers to have a more cost-effective custom process and helps them reduce future risk by being able to quickly modify their process as business needs change,” said Darron Jurajda, Director of Brewer Science’s Semiconductor Business. “In the past year, we have expanded our OptiStack® materials platform to include materials for negative-tone development (NTD), extreme ultraviolet (EUV), and directed self-assembly (DSA) patterning.”

Brewer Science will share these advancements at SPIE Advanced Lithography, February 24-28, 2013, in San Jose, California, by presenting the following papers:
