Point of Care Testing is revolutionizing many aspects of medicine by changing the way patients and healthcare professionals interact by increasing patient access to data and providing rapid test results. These test and devices being developed are stimulating great advancements in technology and require innovative materials to make them function and with the recent Pandemic has proven even more invaluable.

ZEON’s ZEONEX® and ZEONOR® Cyclo Olefin Polymer (COP) offer ultra-pure, inert, low-fluorescence, glass-like transparency and superior moldability that will allow these new POC devices to function as intended and continue to revolutionize the healthcare industry. In addition, with the shortage of glass the need for innovative materials has increased and COP is in high demand.

If you are planning on attending this event, please visit our booth at 314 to have an in depth discussion about COP or contact us virtually.

SPIE Photomask Technology + EUV Lithography

Location: Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, CA

Date: September 17, 2019

Oral presentation will be made at 10:30a in Session 5, EUV resist 1 (Conference 11148).

http://spie.org/conferences-and-exhibitions/photomask-technology--extreme-ultraviolet-lithography

The patterning performances of Zeon scission resists exposed using ASML NXE3300 are reported. By optimizing process conditions, a resolution of 16 nm half-pitch for dense line-space pattern can be achieved using the same resist chemistry as for e-beam, but the sensitivity is very low. Therefore, Zeon developed a novel resist with modified polymer structure improving the EUV absorption. For US pattern, the novel resist achieved a resolution of 16 nm half pitch at an exposure dose of 57 mJ/cm2, with unbiased LER of 2.0 nm. For orthogonal C/H pattern, 44 nm pitch was resolved at 50.4 mJ/cm2, with a LCDU of 3.4 nm.
