Some of the spin-on interlayer dielectrics (ILD) with dielectric constant k below 2.3, targeted for the 65 nm node and below, are available with their spin-on hard masks (SoHM) to reduce the total effective capacitance and to provide high selectivity to their respective ILDs during integration. In this work, FF-02, JSR's SoHM is characterised. Its thermal stability, chemical compatibility to stripping solutions and resistance to moisture are investigated. Methods to seal the surface of FF-02 to chemicals are explored. Electrical properties including the dielectric constant, leakage current and breakdown fields are evaluated in planar capacitors and in single damascene structures. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
