  • Publication number: 20140299969
    Abstract: Compositions for directed self-assembly (DSA) patterning techniques are provided. Methods for directed self-assembly are also provided in which a DSA composition comprising a block copolymer is applied to a substrate and then self-assembled to form the desired pattern. The block copolymer includes at least two blocks of differing etch rates, so that one block (e.g., polymethylmethacrylate) is selectively removed during etching. Because the slower etching block (e.g., polystyrene) is modified with an additive to further slow the etch rate of that block, more of the slow etching block remains behind to fully transfer the pattern to underlying layers.

  • Publication number: 20140296382
    Abstract: An ink used for direct inkjet printing to plate based on nanometer material and a method for preparing same. Of the baseline total amount of the ink, 5 to 30 wt % is of film-forming resin, 0.01 to 5 wt % is of nanometer or micrometer dye, 30 to 60 wt % is of organic solvent, 0.01 to 5 wt % is of humectant, and water provides the balance; these ingredients are stirred and mixed at room temperature, and after the film-forming resin is completely dissolved, impurities and/or insoluble substances in the present invention are removed by means of multi-level filtering, and the obtained filtrate is the present ink. The ink in the present invention is sprayed on a metal base material surface by an inkjet printer o form a printing pattern which, after curing, can be directly printed on the machine, thus reducing chemical pollution and post-processing processes, while a press run of the printing plate can be up to 100,000 copies at a resolution of up to 175 lpi.
