Method for an improved developing process in wafer photolithography










Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6746826.

Methods and apparatus are described for improved yield and line width performance for liquid polymers and other materials. A method for minimizing precipitation of developing reactant by lowering a sudden change in pH includes: developing at least a portion of a polymer layer on a substrate with an initial charge of a developer fluid; then rinsing the polymer with an additional charge of the developer fluid so as to controllably minimize a subsequent sudden change in pH; and then rinsing the polymer with a charge of another fluid. A method for achieving a more uniform, quasi-equilibrium succession of states from the introduction of developer chemical to the wafer surface to its removal is also described. The method reduces process-induced defects and improves critical dimension (CD) control.
