Title:
ELECTROPLATING APPARATUS AND ELECTROPLATING METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/223499
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present invention provide an electroplating apparatus for electroplating on a surface of a wafer, the electroplating apparatus comprising a plurality of electrodes, the plurality of electrodes forming electric fields on the surface of the wafer, wherein an independent electric field is formed in a designated area, the intensity of the independent electric field is independently controlled, when a notch of the wafer is positioned within the designated area, a total amount of power received by the notch within the designated area is reduced. Embodiments of the present invention also provide an electroplating method for electroplating on a surface of a wafer by using a plurality of electrodes, the method controlling the plurality of electrodes to form electric fields on the surface of the wafer, wherein an independent electric field is formed in a designated area, the intensity of the independent electric field is independently controlled, when a notch of the wafer is positioned within the designated area, a total amount of power received by the notch within the designated area is reduced. The electroplating apparatus and the electroplating method of the present invention control the electroplating height of the notch of the wafer by directly controlling the intensity of the electric field. Compared with a conventional control method which only changing the rotation speed of the wafer, the present invention is more accurate and reliable, the electroplating efficiency is also increased.
