The development of advanced slurries to meet the rigorous requirements for silicon polishing is discussed. A silicon slurry was developed for planarizing silicon substrates. The mechanism of polishing was studied by polishing kinetics, ζ potential, FTIR and particle size measurements. In addition, a selective slurry which can be tuned to give high to moderate oxide removal and moderate silicon polishing rates has been developed.
