AZ And IBM Join For ‘Smart Chemicals’
AZ Electronic Materials and IBM have signed a multiyear agreement to develop alternative lithographic technologies. AZ scientists in the U.S., Germany, and South Korea will work with IBM’s Almaden Research Center on block copolymers that enable directed self-assembly processes that are compatible with conventional semiconductor lithography. Ralph Dammel, AZ’s chief technology officer, says his firm aims to become the premier supplier of “smart chemicals” used in next-generation semiconductor patterning.
