Abstract: Semiconductor manufacturing processes like chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) and photolithography has become an indispensable processing module used in fabrication facilities worldwide. The lack of in-situ measurements of the product qualities of interest, in this case, the surface thickness uniformity, makes run-to-run control the only viable scheme in most semiconductor manufacturing processes. The literature contains many variations of run-to-run control schemes to control the CMP process. In this thesis, we analyze the performance of these run-to-run control schemes and propose a self-tuning predictor-corrector controller (PCC). A 25% improvement in performance is observed in comparison with the other schemes.
