The present invention relates to a polishing composition including water and silica, wherein the silica has a BET specific surface area of 30 m^(2)/g or more and an NMR specific surface area of 10 m^(2)/g or more, and a polishing method using the polishing composition. The polishing composition of the present invention adopts silica having the BET specific surface area falling within the above-described range, and additionally having the NMR specific surface area falling within a specific range, and consequently attains a high polishing rate, and can maintain the polishing rate even when used for a long time.


A composition for polishing silicon nitride according to the present invention includes colloidal silica, a polishing aid including a phosphoric acid compound and a sulfuric acid compound. By further including an oxidizing agent, a first selectivity representing the ratio of a polishing speed for a metal layer to a polishing speed for a silicon nitride layer and a second selectivity representing the ratio of a polishing speed for an oxide insulating layer to a polishing speed for a silicon nitride are controlled.

A polishing composition of the invention is a polishing composition which is suitable for polishing a metal film, which is so-called final polishing, and contains colloidal silica having an average particle size of 20 nm or more and less than 80 nm which is determined by particle size distribution measurement using a light scattering method as abrasive grains; and at least one selected from iodic acid and its salt as an oxidizing agent, with the balance of water. By containing such components, the polishing composition shows nonselectivity, while being sufficiently suppressed in dishing and erosion.

Provided is a polishing composition that does not contain abrasives and that is used for polishing a silicon wafer, the polishing composition including a pH buffer, a polishing accelerator, a water-soluble polymer, and a block-type compound. By polishing a silicon wafer by using the polishing composition, a polishing speed of greater than 0.1 m/min can be achieved.


A polishing pad has structural parts embedded therein; sensors, a memory for storing detected information obtained by the sensors, and a communication unit driven by a power supply unit to communicate with outside in a non-contact manner. The polishing pad and a communication unit configured to communicate with the communication unit of the polishing pad in a non-contact manner constitute a polishing information management system. The polishing pad and a communication unit configured to transmit and receive the information to and from the communication unit of the polishing pad in a non-contact manner constitute a polishing apparatus.
