Abstract

There is a need for improved means and methods for cleaning the surfaces of integrated circuit wafers during manufacturing. A variety of different cleaning systems have been developed in the prior art to reduce the level of contamination on silicon wafers. However, with many prior art cleaning systems and methods, con- tamination is actually added to the surface rather than removed.
