Abstract:ABSTRACTOne-micrometer wide copper lines are patterned by direct imprinting and thermolysis. First, a layer of plastic copper hexanoate is spun on a substrate and patterned by direct imprint. Then the copper hexanoate line pattern is converted to copper metal lines by thermal and hydrogen anneals. The converted copper film resistivity is ∼8 μωcm. The direct imprinting of a fine metal pattern points the way to the direct patterning of device materials at high resolution
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
