Abstract

The development of a functional negative tone sol–gel resist for Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) lithography is presented. A new highly inorganic system based on ZrO 2 is synthesized by sol–gel method. The lithographic performances have been optimized and several structures spanning from the micron range down to less than 50 nm have been achieved by UV and EB lithography. Moreover, in order to test the bio-affinity of the developed system, a genomic DNA probe has been attached onto the ZrO 2 film surface. Different thermal treatments have been applied to the samples and preliminary results show different degrees of anchoring, depending on the final ZrO 2 film structure (hybrid ? inorganic or amorphous ? crystalline). FT-IR characterization confirms the successful DNA functionalization of thepatternable ZrO2 system, especially in the crystalline phase, opening the way to the design of new biosensor architectures.
