Study on Adhesion Removal Model in CMP SiO2 ILD


Article Preview

In the process of CMP SiO2 ILD, the nano-particle with high surface energy in slurry has an essential impact on the efficiency and quality of CMP. In this paper the mode of nano-particle on the surface of SiO2 ILD is analysed and adhesion removal model corresponding to that is established. Through cycle polishing experiments, the change of nano-particle size and the state of particle surface before and after polishing is observed with TEM and Zeta potential analyzer, based on which the adhesion removal model is verified.
