COPPER ANNEALING 

Annealing is a heat treatment where the microstructure of a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as strength and hardness. In the semiconductor industry, silicon wafers are annealed so that dopant atoms (such as boron, phosphorus or arsenic), can be incorporated into substitutional positions into the crystal lattice, which drastically changes the electrical properties of the semiconducting material.
In the case of copper, adding an anneal step:

APPLICATIONS 

bullet Improves properties of the copper layer
bullet

Increases grain size for faster polishing

bullet

Provides better conductivity

bullet

Reduces surface tension

bullet

Minimizes electromigration

bullet

Allows a consistent CMP rate across the wafer
