Method and apparatus for polishing workpiece

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6328629.

A workpiece such as a semiconductor wafer is held by a top ring, and a lower surface of the workpiece is polished to a flat mirror finish by being pressed against a polishing surface of the turntable while the top ring and the turntable are rotated. While the workpiece is being polished, at least one of the pressure and the flow rate of a fluid which is supplied to an upper surface of the workpiece is detected. When at least one of the detected pressure and the detected flow rate changes, the polishing of the workpiece is stopped.
