Abstract:

A scanning tunneling microscope STM has been used to define features having critical dimensions ranging from 0.05 to 5.0 micrometer within a self-assembled monolayer resist of octadecylmercaptan, HSCH217CH3, confined to a Au 111 surface. Low temperature chemical vapor deposition CVD methods were used to metalize the STM-patterned surface with Cu. At substrate temperatures near 120 deg C, the Cu CVD precursor, hexafluoroacetylacetonatocopperI-1,5- cyclooctadiene, disproportionates to deposit Cu on the STM-etched portion of the substrate, but not on the unetched methyl-terminated monolayer resist surface. At substrate temperatures significantly above 120 deg C the degree of selectivity is reduced, probably as a result of thermal desorption of the organomercaptan monolayer.
