Abstract

A range of copolymers containing styrene and epoxystyrene, when formulated with a photo-acid generator, undergo a cross-linking reaction by a chain reaction mechanism when exposed to high-energy radiation in an electron beam lithographic writing machine. The sensitivities of the formulations are shown to correlate with a simple kinetic model for the radiation chemistry of the system. Deductions about the nature of the cross-linking species have been made by comparing the behaviour of the epoxystyrene system with that observed for an epoxy novolac. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
