AGC’s Ceria-based slurry was developed for oxide layer polishing for STI and ILD applications. Key benefits with CES-350 Series slurries include narrow particle size distribution and superior dispersion technologies for less than 45nm node. These properties enable good slurry stability and superb process control. CES-350 series ceria slurry provides excellent planarization and very low defectivity on customer wafers. All CMP slurry products at AGC are alpha-tested at Asahi’s world-class research center using the latest in CMP process equipment.
