Method for dressing a polishing pad, polishing apparatus, and method for manufacturing a semiconductor apparatus

Image Number 12 for United States Patent #6716087.

A dresser is used which makes it possible to simultaneously dress and condition the surface of a polishing pad deteriorated by polishing a semiconductor wafer in the CMP process. The dresser is a dresser comprised of a ceramic such as dressing SiC, SiN, alumina or silica. Use of this dresser enables to shorten the time of dressing/conditioning the deteriorated polishing pad.
