  • Publication number: 20090075566
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of chemically-mechanically polishing a substrate. A substrate is contacted with a polishing pad and a polishing composition comprising an abrasive consisting of (A) particles consisting of titanium dioxide having a rutile structure and (B) particles consisting of titanium dioxide having an anatase structure, wherein an x-ray diffraction pattern of the particles has a ratio of X/Y of about 0.5 or more, wherein X is an intensity of a peak in an x-ray diffraction curve representing a d-spacing of about 3.24 ?, and Y is an intensity of a peak in an x-ray diffraction curve representing a d-spacing of about 3.51 ?, and water. The polishing component is moved relative to the substrate, and at least a portion of the substrate is abraded to polish the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20090056231
    Abstract: The CMP compositions of the invention comprise not more than about 1 percent by weight of a particulate abrasive, a polyelectrolyte, which preferably has a weight average molecular weight of at least about 10,000 grams-per-mole (g/mol), a copper-complexing agent, and an aqueous carrier therefor. The polyelectrolyte can be an anionic polymer (e.g., an acrylate polymer or copolymer) or a cationic polymer (e.g., poly(2-[(methacryloyloxy)ethyl] trimethyl-ammonium halide). When an anionic polyelectrolyte is utilized, the copper-complexing agent preferably comprises an amino polycarboxylate compound (e.g., iminodiacetic acid or a salt thereof). When a cationic polyelectrolyte is utilized, the copper-complexing agent preferably comprises an amino acid (e.g., glycine). Preferably, the particulate abrasive comprises metal oxide such as titanium dioxide or silicon dioxide. Methods of polishing copper-containing substrates with the compositions are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20090035942
    Abstract: The present invention provides a chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) composition for polishing a ruthenium-containing substrate in the presence of an oxidizing agent such as hydrogen peroxide without forming a toxic level of ruthenium tetroxide during the polishing process. The composition comprises a particulate abrasive (e.g., silica, alumina, and/or titania) suspended in an aqueous carrier containing a ruthenium-coordinating oxidized nitrogen ligand (N—O ligand), such as a nitroxide (e.g., 4-hydroxy-TEMPO). In the presence of the oxidizing agent, the N—O ligand prevents the deposition of ruthenium species having an oxidation state of IV or higher on the surface of the substrate, and concomitantly forms a soluble Ru(II) N—O coordination complex with oxidized ruthenium formed during CMP of the substrate. CMP methods for polishing ruthenium-containing surfaces with the CMP composition are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20080274619
    Abstract: The present invention provides a chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) composition for polishing a ruthenium-containing substrate in the presence of hydrogen peroxide without forming a toxic level of ruthenium tetroxide during the polishing process. The composition comprises (a) a catalytic oxidant comprising a water-soluble peroxometalate complex, an oxidizable precursor of a peroxometalate complex, or a combination thereof, (b) a particulate abrasive; and (c) an aqueous carrier. The peroxometalate complex and the precursor thereof each have a reduced form that is oxidizable by hydrogen peroxide to regenerate the peroxometalate complex during chemical-mechanical polishing. CMP methods for polishing ruthenium-containing surfaces with the CMP composition are also provided.

  • Patent number: 7351781
    Abstract: A controlled free radical polymerization process, which includes the steps of: adding a monofunctional iniferter compound to an oxygen-free solvent; heating the solution to a temperature sufficient to allow the iniferter compound to form two carbon centered radical residues; adding a first monomer composition comprising one or more monomers to the solution containing the radical containing residues; polymerizing the first monomer composition to form a quasi-living polymer; and optionally polymerizing a second monomer composition comprising one or more monomers, which are different than the first monomer composition. The resulting non-random copolymer having the general formula: ?-[-Ap-Bs-]t-? where A and B are different compositions of ethylenically unsaturated monomers; p is an integer from 1 to 1,000; s is an integer from 0 to 1,000; t is an integer from 1 to 100; and ? is a residue from the iniferter.

  • Publication number: 20080060277
    Abstract: The invention provides an isolated, particulate polyoxometalate complex comprising a water-soluble cationic polymer and a polyoxometalate compound ionically bound to the cationic polymer. The polyoxometalate compound can be an isopolyoxometalate compound, such as an isopolytungstate, or a heteropolyoxometalate compound. The invention further provides a chemical-mechanical polishing composition comprising a preformed polyoxometalate abrasive, as well as a method of chemically-mechanically polishing a substrate therewith.
