Paper Title:
Experimental Trial of Fullerene Wheel Fabrication
  Abstract

The purpose of this study is to fabricate a wheel using fullerenes with nano-scaled particles, and to investigate the polishing performance of fullerene wheel. A super smooth surface was formed on a silicon wafer by polishing the wafer with metal-bonded diamond wheels using a diamond abrasive grit of 0-0.125 μm and fullerenes with a diameter of 0.7 nm. We used two kinds of metal-bonded diamond wheels for pre-polishing and a metal-bonded fullerene wheel for the finishing process. Though the surface roughness after polishing with the fullerene wheel was almost equal to that obtained by polishing with the metal-bonded diamond wheel using diamond abrasive grit of 0-0.125 μm, the chemical-mechanical polishing process was clarified by AFM (atomic force microscope) observation when we used a metal-bonded fullerene wheel with 5wt% KOH (potassium hydroxide) solution. The greater number of smoothed portions on the surface of the silicon wafer indicated that the fullerenes provided the same polishing ability as that of the abrasive grit.
