The article reports on the collaboration of Sematech with the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Queensland, to develop resists for 193 nanometer immersion lithography, in 2006. Such lithography has been under development as an answer to certain manufacturing problems at advanced nodes of semiconductor manufacturing. Sematech and university technologists will identify and qualify novel, high-refractive-index polymers for multiple technology generations.
