The prediction of dishing and erosion caused by CMP is desired as they adversely affect the electrical properties of interconnects in integrated circuits. For a model to properly capture these phenomena, it must account for the time dependent surface evolution in CMP. This work employs the previously introduced Particle-Augmented Mixed Lubrication (PAML) model to predict dishing and erosion in CMP. By using PAML to model the polishing of a patterned wafer, it is possible to predict the dishing and erosion experienced during CMP.
