January 2024: Electra 92 established on the market – AR-PC 5092.02

At AMOLF, Electra 92 was applied to HSQ deposited on a 40 nm thick SiO2 layer of a silicon wafer. Due to its highly hydrophobic surface, HSQ is particularly challenging. A specially adapted version of Electra 92 was required for this task.

October 2023: Medusa 84 SiH – SX AR-N 8400 another alternative to HSQ

In contrast to Medusa 82, the optical transparency of Medusa 84 SiH is significantly higher, since it is made of purely inorganic components. This transparency is important for a large group of customers who use such resists for optical applications.

April 2023: E-beam PMMA resist AR-P 672.045 – the workhorse for electron beam lithography

Due to the high sales volume, AR-P 672.045 is our internal “market leader”. This resist is used by three major microchip manufacturers in France, Germany, and China. The consumption is thus steadily increasing, and meanwhile more than 300 liters of this resist are ordered annually.

January 2023: Standard resist AR-P 3510 – 30 years on the world market

Right from the beginning, the idea of sustainability was firmly anchored in the philosophy of our young company. One of the first advanced developments of Allresist was the replacement of teratogenic solvents in the positive photoresist AR-P 351 with safer solvents. This is how the standard resist AR-P 3510 was created, in which the excellent lithographic properties of AR-P 351 were retained, but the resist was now significantly less dangerous to health for the user.
