Brewer Science presents innovative materials and processes at SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference 2024
San Jose, CA – February 21, 2024 – Brewer Science, Inc., a global leader in developing and manufacturing next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, presents material advancements and innovative processes at leading semiconductor event SPIE Advanced Lithography + Patterning in San Jose, California.
Enhanced performance and efficiency require advanced material and processes
With over 40 years of experience innovating semiconductor materials and processes, Brewer Science presents how to achieve enhanced performance and efficiency in semiconductor manufacturing. Three presentations will be featured at SPIE Advanced Lithography and Patterning conference.
All three presentations share a common theme of advancing materials and processes in semiconductor manufacturing and optical device fabrication. The presentations focus on improving performance and efficiency in their respective domains through the exploration of novel materials, underlayers, and fabrication techniques. Whether it’s optimizing lithography in 14-nm extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL), enhancing the lithographic performance of metal oxide resist (MOR) technology via underlayers, or developing high- and low-refractive-index materials for next-generation optical devices, these presentations contribute to the ongoing evolution of technologies that are crucial for the semiconductor and optical industries. They showcase a commitment to innovation, precision, and the pursuit of materials that enable more advanced and reliable manufacturing processes, ultimately impacting the performance and capabilities of electronic devices and optical systems.
Presentations address crucial advancement in semiconductor innovation
Dr. Si (Elly) Li will present Lithography performance improvement of MOR by underlayers on February 28th, at 2:40pm PST. The presentation evaluates how optimizing underlayers enhances MOR performance in lithography, including reducing dose and footing. Read the full presentation abstract on the event website.
During the poster session, Dr. Xinlin Lu will present Understanding and improving performance of 14-nm HP EUV lithography via rational design of materials, which examines a new spin-on glass underlayer with improved properties enhances EUV lithography performance compared to conventional underlayers.
