This paper describes techniques to prepare integrated circuit (IC) samples, containing a Thick Organic Dielectric (TOD) over Cu inductors, for Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) or Focused Ion Beam (FIB) editing. Our technique utilizes mechanical polishing and UV laser ablation in lieu of chemical decapsulation and deprocessing.
