Several new dendrimers have been synthesized which contain acid thermally labile groups on their periphery. The tert-butyl ester and carbonate peripheral groups can be removed by an acid catalyzed thermolysis to drastically alter the solubility properties of the dendrimer, thus forming the basis for a two-tone chemically amplified resist material. A chemically amplified resist based on a dendritic polymer was demonstrated. This two-tone systems shows a high sensitivity towards both DUV and electron beam irradiation.
