Silicon oxide pillars with tunable feature sizes and pitches are fabricated based on a block copolymer self-assembly template. By using reactive ion etching (RIE), the feature size of the silicon oxide pillars can be tuned without affecting the pitch. Using BCP with a different molecular weight can change the pitch size of the silicon oxide pillars. An area density of up to 2 teradots/inch2 is achieved.
