  • Patent number: 11152229
    Abstract: A semiconductor manufacturing apparatus includes a chuck stage, a scrubber nozzle, a scrubber nozzle scan mechanism, a stage rotation mechanism, and a holding stage including a holding fluid nozzle and a top plate, the top plate having one main surface facing an opposite surface of a wafer, and the holding fluid nozzle being disposed adjacent to a center rather than a periphery portion of the top plate. A holding fluid discharged from the holding fluid nozzle is caused to flow through an area between the opposite surface of the wafer and the one main surface of the top plate to produce holding force, and the holding force causes the opposite surface to hold pressure applied to a processing surface of the wafer by a scrubbing fluid discharged from the scrubber nozzle.
