In-situ monitoring of linear substrate polishing operations

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6585563.

A substrate polishing scheme (apparatus and method) is described according to which a polishing surface of a polishing sheet is driven in a generally linear direction by a drive mechanism, a surface of a substrate is held against the polishing surface of the polishing sheet by a polishing head, and the substrate is probed through the polishing sheet by a monitoring system.
