Density-sensor-for-slurry-health - .PDF file.

Chemical mechanical planarization is a critical production step during microcircuit manufacturing. The smaller the electronic components, the more sophisticated the CMP process. The customer goal is to have flat, smooth, polished wafers.

The polishing procedure is performed in clean room where the air contains less than one dust particle per cubic meter. Slurry containing mainly pure water, a chemical reagent and different polishing particles are used between the polishing pad and the wafer. A slurry’s “health” depends on its stability and contamination level. Foreign particles, solved carbon dioxide and ionic contaminations can disturb the polishing process as well as slurry particle aggregates and agglomerates. A dynamic measurement of the slurry properties coupled with defined control limits can be used to determine a slurry health.
