The use of surface monolayer initiated polymerization, in which initiators are chemically bound to a surface, can generate robust barrier polymers for pattern formation in silicon by reactive ion etching. The combination of poly(vinylarenes) and a new surface initiator based upon a phenylazo initiator provides excellent etch resistance and superior performance. © 2001 American Vacuum Society.
