Surface growth lithography is an attractive technique that eliminates the need for resist transparency. Critical to the success of this method is a smooth and homogeneous film capable of immobilizing a high concentration of initiator on the surface. This report outlines the design, synthesis, and preliminary testing of a polymeric photoactive acid generator (PAG), which is suitable for use with cationic surface growth lithography.
