Current lithographic resists depend on large polymeric materials, which are starting to limit further improvements in line-width roughness and feature size. Fullerene molecular resists use much smaller molecules to avoid this problem. However, such resists have poor radiation sensitivity. Chemical amplification of a fullerene derivative using an epoxy crosslinker and a photoacid generator is demonstrated. The sensitivity of the material is increased by two orders of magnitude, and 20-nm line widths are patterned.
