Hydrogen Silsesquioxane
Hydrogen silsesquioxane (R = H).

Hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ) is class of inorganic compounds with the chemical formula [HSiO3/2]n.[1] Such clusters are specific representatives of the family of silsesquioxanes with the formula [RSiO3/2]n (R = alkyl, halide, alkoxide, etc.). The most widely studied member of the hydrogen silsesquioxanes is the cubic cluster H8Si8O12.

HSQ has been used in photolithography and Electron-beam lithography due to the fine resolution achievable (~10 nm).[2] Thickness of the coated resist has been reported to play a major role in the achievable resolution.[3]

Cross-linking of the HSQ can is achieved through exposure to e-beam or EUV radiation with wavelengths shorter than 157 nm.

A collection of practical knowledge for using HSQ is provided by Georgia Tech[1].
