Multi-layer: A better solution in manufacturing

When faced with a difficult problem, it’s hard to know which way to go. Technology and semiconductor manufacturing certainly have their fair share of challenges. The biggest one (or at least the most recurring) is that demand for smaller and smaller feature sizes is greater than our ability to manufacture them. There’s always the quick…

Developer options for spin-on photosensitive materials

Developing photosensitive film layers to produce features of targeted sizes is a critical process step within any photolithography application. Application engineers have created several processes for performing this step with tank immersion (that is, a bath) and/or several adaptations of spin developing a single wafer to make patterns of features based on film areas of…

Finding Nano: Where Will DSA Lead Us Next?

In its constant quest to innovate, Brewer Science is continually on the cutting edge of what is next. We are currently combining directed self-assembly (DSA) and lithography to achieve sub–10 nm nanostructures. DSA uses block copolymers to generate arrays of self-assembled shapes such as lines or cylinders; the spatial arrangements of the resulting features can…

Control the Light, Change the World

Light is energy. It’s a simple statement that holds almost unfathomable implications. The earth and its inhabitants as we know them would not exist without the power of light. It warms the planet and is a crucial element of weather and climate. It fuels our entire food chain and is key to the process that…

From the Bottom Up: Making More Room with Selective Surface Modification

Richard Feynman, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, gave a famous lecture titled “There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom.” Today’s microelectronics process engineer, in the context of conventional top down lithography, would find it difficult to accept this statement without a long list of caveats. Aggressive scaling demands for newer generations…

DSA: How far we've come and how much farther is left to go

To the average consumer, the path of new technology looks pretty linear. A cool new concept emerges, scientists figure out how to manufacture it, and pretty soon consumers can find it in a product. But people who work in technology know that’s hardly ever the case. On September 9th, Darron Jurajda, the Brewer Science Semiconductor…

Directed Self-Assembly

 Directed self-assembly (DSA) refers to the integration of block copolymer (BCP) materials that undergo phase separation with traditional manufacturing processes. With DSA, nanoscale dimensions are achieved at a drastically reduced cost by novel material designs without additional equipment upgrades. Alternative lithographic approaches to achieve features ≤10 nanometers in size typically involve higher equipment budgets or…
