Paper Abstract

The disadvantages of traditional methods of edge grinding silicon wafers are discussed. With the industry's move to 300 mm format wafers, comes the pressure of environmental issues to minimize acid etch from the wafer process which is commonly used to improve surface finish and reduce sub surface damage. The recent work of Cranfield Precision in wafer edge processing is described, together with descriptions of a new grinding process and machine to eliminate grinding induced damage and minimize the polishing time.
