Demand for ever smaller critical dimensions in the electronic devices continue pressing conventional photolithography beyond the diffraction limit. Scientific and technological challenges arise as resolution requirements approach molecular length scales and the economics of new lithographic technologies become prohibitively expensive. Self-assembling structures at the nanometer scale have emerged as a way to overcome these limitations. Block copolymer, which self-assembles a wide variety of periodic nano-domain structures, stands out as a promising alternative to produce features in the 10nm scale. In this paper, methods such as graphoepitaxy and chemical registration proposed to precisely control the self-assembly of block copolymer are overviewed and potential of the technology is discussed focusing on pattern density multiplication technique for lithographic application.
