  • Patent number: 10126653
    Abstract: Provided is a method of forming a pattern, ensuring excellent sensitivity, limiting resolving power, roughness characteristic, exposure latitude (EL), dependence on post-exposure bake (PEB) temperature and focus latitude (depth of focus DOF), and a resist composition for use in the method. The method comprises (A) forming a film from a resist composition comprising a resin containing a repeating unit containing a group that is decomposed when acted on by an acid to thereby produce an alcoholic hydroxyl group, which resin thus when acted on by an acid decreases its solubility in a developer containing an organic solvent, (B) exposing the film to light, and (C) developing the exposed film using a developer containing an organic solvent.

  • Patent number: 10018853
    Abstract: Methods and devices for altering the power of a lens, such as an intraocular lens, are disclosed. In one method, the lens comprises a single polymer matrix containing crosslinkable pendant groups, wherein the polymer matrix increases in volume when crosslinked. The lens does not contain free monomer. Upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation, crosslinking causes the exposed portion of the lens to increase in volume, causing an increase in the refractive index. In another method, the lens comprises a polymer matrix containing photobleachable chromophores. Upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation, photobleaching causes a decrease in refractive index in the exposed portion without any change in lens thickness. These methods avoid the need to wait for diffusion to occur to change the lens shape and avoid the need for a second exposure to radiation to lock in the changes to the lens.
