Abstract
A new polymer, poly(3,4-bis(phenylethynyl)styrene), has been synthesized th at undergoes a Bergman reaction upon heating to yield a highly aromatic mat erial. The occurrence of the cycloaromatization reaction is characterized t hrough thermal analysis and absorption spectroscopy. The plasma etch resist ance of the polymer has been measured by reactive ion etching (RIE) in sulf ur hexafluoride and oxygen plasmas and is shown to be superior to other con ventional organic plasma etch barriers.
