  • Publication number: 20200243350
    Abstract: In substrate processing, by supplying a first processing liquid onto an upper surface 91 of a substrate 9 held in a horizontal state, a liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid which entirely covers the upper surface 91 is formed. Further, by heating the substrate 9, a vapor layer 82 of the first processing liquid is formed between the upper surface 91 and the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid on the upper surface 91. Then, by supplying a second processing liquid onto the upper surface 91 of the substrate 9, the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid is removed from the upper surface 91. It is thereby possible to appropriately remove extraneous matters 89 from the upper surface 91 of the substrate 9, which are taken in the liquid film 81 of the first processing liquid as the vapor layer 82 is formed.
