    Abstract: [Object] To provide a composition for forming a tungsten oxide film from an aqueous solution, and also to provide a pattern formation method employing that composition. [Means] The present invention provides a tungsten oxide film-forming composition comprising: water, a water-soluble metatungstate, and at least one additive selected from the group consisting of anionic polymers, nonionic polymers, anionic surfactants, and tertiary amino group-containing nonionic surfactants. For forming a pattern, this composition can be employed in place of a silicon dioxide film-forming composition in a pattern formation process using an image reversal trilayer structure, a resist undercoat layer or a resist top protective film.

  • Patent number: 8900695
    Abstract: The present invention is related to carbon-doped metal oxide films. The carbon-doped metal oxide films provide a low coefficient of friction, for example ranging from about 0.05 to about 0.4. In addition, the carbon-doped metal oxide films applied over a silicon substrate, for example, provide anti-stiction properties, where the measured work of adhesion for a MEMS device cantilever beam coated with the carbon-doped metal oxide film is less than 10 ?J/m2. In addition, the carbon-doped metal oxide films provide unexpectedly good water vapor transmission properties. The carbon content in the carbon-doped metal oxide films ranges from about 5 atomic % to about 20 atomic %.
