Internship Project 1 Title: Deriving insights from Consumable wear and tear to improve CMP process stability

§Description: Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is a process of wafer planarization with the combination of chemical and mechanical forces. Multiple factors such as pad wear rate and temperature can affect process stability. Huge amount of data is being collected during every processed wafer. There are enormous potential to derive insight from these data and pinpoint opportunities for improvement.
§Scope: In this internship, the student will learn focus on the application of pad wear rate and dresser cut rate from CMP equipment to derive insights from this data and further optimized the run-to-run model and extend CMP consumable life. The internship program begins by providing an in-depth knowledge about CMP processes, equipment as well as process integration knowledge on how 3D NAND is designed and produced. After that, the student will apply various statistical tools such as 6 sigma, SPC, and Multivariate Regression to identify and implement potential improvement for CMP run-to-run process control algorithm. Other key focuses of this internship also includes exploring the use of wafer image recognition algorithm as failure detection for underpolish and overpolish of the wafer.
§Deliverable: Utilizing the pad wear rate and dresser cut rate to improve CMP process capability and extend the consumable life

Internship Project 2 Title: An exploration into equipment parameters in slurry coverage optimization on Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) oxide processes

§Description: CMP process is crucial for achieving the 3D NAND performance goals and slurry plays an important role in the process performance which strongly influences the efficiency of planarization. Hence, it is essential to ensure that slurry is distributed effectively during process. In this project, student will gain 1st hand experience of Semiconductor Fab operations and work with Process Engineering team regarding process development and process control methodology used in production environment.
§Scope: Collaborate with the process and equipment engineers to perform in-depth study of factors contributing to slurry distribution during process and further improve the efficiency of planarization by developing recipe with optimized process conditions. Student will have the hands-on opportunity to work on CMP polishing equipment, perform multi-variable Design of Experiment (DOE) to obtain the optimal process conditions and learn how to use statistical tools, fab-specific applications and software for operations/datamining.
§Deliverable: To explore innovative solutions and develop Best Known Method for the identified processes to improve surface topography performance.
