Commercial Photomasking uses photoimageable color polymer.

Press Release Summary:

Multifaceted microlithography techniques pattern photoimageable color polymer-coated substrates using direct-write laser, direct-write e-beam, optical reduction, and full field exposure lithography. Photoimageable color polymers provide means of producing microscopic patterns in various standard colors as well as custom polymer colors. Line widths can be produced as small as 2 microns in color polymers, offering compatible with nanoscale applications.

Photo Sciences Introduces New Photoimageable Color Polymer on Substrates Using Commercial Photomask Lithography and Micro Patterning

In November 2007 Photo Sciences successfully introduced a new process and procedure to enable substrates to be coated with photoimageable color polymers for processing in its commercial photomask lithography and micro patterning perations.

Photo Sciences uses its multi-faceted microlithography techniques to pattern photoimageable color polymer coated substrates using direct-write laser, direct-write e-beam, optical reduction and full field exposure lithography. This commercial photomasking process is often used for filters or as projection reticles such as gobos. The photoimageable color polymers deliver a high quality means of producing microscopic patterns in various standard colors such as red, blue and green but a wide array custom polymer colors can be developed when necessary. Photo Sciences has successfully produced line widths as small as 2 microns in the color polymers making it workable with nano scale applications. Photo Sciences uses state-of-the-art measurement and test equipment to ensure that the photoimageable color polymers meet microscopic thickness and spectral requirements. The use of proprietary multi-level aligning exposure systems ensures that the multiple layers of colored polymer patterns can be aligned to one another to create a wide array of color and pattern configurations on a variety of substrates.
