Sequential Infiltration Synthesis (SIS)
Argonne National Laboratory, IL, United States
Sequential infiltration synthesis is a process by which polymeric films are infiltrated with inorganic materials creating durable films with the properties of ceramic coatings. These polymers are considerably more robust, offering a simple, plug-in solution, enabling the lithography industry to maintain the current pace of microelectronics development.
Primary Application Area: Instrumentation & Manufacturing
Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This SIS lithography process offers simplicity, higher pattern transfer quality, and introduces functionality (magnetic, optoelectronic, catalytic, etc.) directly into a resist pattern. The resist/mask is easy to remove, allows deep features to be patterned into the substrate and concerns over wetting and pattern collapse are eliminated.
