Abstract: In this paper, we report two kinds of guide patterns precisely created by electron beam drawing. These guide patterns are expected to precisely control the arrangement of nanodots self-assembled from block copolymer (BCP) in order to obtain long-range-order nanofabrication. The first guide pattern is comprised only of a post lattice. The second guide pattern adds guide lines to the post lattice. The added guide lines are expected to better control the location and orientation of the BCP nanodots. We succeeded in fabricating these two kinds of guide patterns for 22-nm- and 33-nm-pitch BCP nanodots.

Abstract: We have studied functionalization of guide pattern with brush treatment. Especially, the effect of brush treatment on ordering of nanodots formed on the guide pattern was investigated. We used polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as brush modification to form self-assembled nanodots on the guide pattern using polystyrene (PS) - PDMS as block copolymer. The brush treatment using toluene solvent made guide patterns of the electron beam (EB) drawn resist behave like PDMS guide patterns and good ordering of the nanodots has been achieved. It was demonstrated that the brush treatment enabled the PDMS nanodots to be regularly located in the desired positions defined by the EB drawn guide patterns.
