As the semiconductor industry struggles to maintain the pace set by Moore’s Law, the lithography research community must take on new challenges to ensure robust resist performance. Current research continues on parallel paths for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and 193-nm immersion technologies, stretching available resources to solve critical issues in line-edge roughness (LER), sensitivity, resolution, etch resistance, and optics contamination. SEMATECH is making progress in solving key issues of cutting-edge technologies with the help and cooperation of suppliers, universities, national labs, and other consortia.
