An efficient CMP process for organic low-k MSQ as an intermetal dielectric material is reported. The commercial SS-25™ silica-based slurry combined with the additive TMAH can accelerate the polish rate of organic MSQ film. The presence of nitrogen effectively prevents the post-CMP MSQ from moisture uptake and copper diffusion.
