Bonding in Microsystem Technology by Donald Rapp

By Donald Rapp

Bonding in Microsystem expertise matters the intriguing box of microsystems (known below various names as: MEMS, µTAS (analytical or chemical Microsystems), MOEMS: the micro-miniature units, using super miniaturized mechanical constructions made often from silicon via rainy deep anisotropic etching. Such constructions can't be used at once, they need to be designed and fabricated as part of the 3 – dimensional multi-layer sandwich outfitted from silicon or silicon and glass. The approaches of formation of the sort of sandwich are often called bonding. The booklet comprises the outline of rainy anisotropic micromachining of uncomplicated silicon micromechanical buildings and their usage in microsystems through the precise dialogue of all of tools of bonding used for the formation of silicon and silicon-glass microsystems, with the detailed awareness paid to the anodic bonding approach.

Bonding in Microsystem know-how begins with descriptions of terminology, sorts of microsystems and industry research. Following this, presentation of mechanisms of rainy etching, set of strategy parameters, description of micromachining equipment, examples of tactics, approach flow-charts and functions of uncomplicated micromechanical buildings in microsystems are proven. subsequent, high-temperature, low temperature and room-temperature bonding and their functions in microsystem know-how are provided. the next a part of the e-book comprises the distinct description of anodic bonding, ranging from research of houses of glasses compatible for anodic bonding, and dialogue of the character of the method. subsequent every kind of anodic bonding and sealing systems utilized in microsystem expertise are provided. This a part of the ebook finishes with examples of purposes of anodic bonding in microsystem know-how taken from the literature yet normally in line with the author’s own adventure.

Bonding in Microsystem expertise is addressed to scientists and researchers, in addition to to educational academics and scholars, engineers lively within the box of electric/electronics and microelectronics. it might function the encyclopaedia of rainy etching and bonding for microsystem know-how. Technological effects provided within the publication were demonstrated experimentally by way of the writer and his staff, and will be used in day by day laboratory perform. particular awareness has been paid to the top point of accessibility of the e-book through scholars. The publication features a huge variety of illustrations, algorithmic flow-charts and microsystems description and a wealthy index of literature sources.

The disadvantage of this method is the use of the protecting holder. The holder may induce mechanical stresses in an etched substrate, which may break large-area thin membranes. What is more, the use of many holders and electrical connections, connected to all substrates etched in a batch-type process complicates etching equipment. This drawback Fig. 23. Voltmetric curves obtained for a KOH solution – an example of electrochemical etching; a) the influence of concentration of solution, b) the influence of temperature, c) the influence of illumination [102].

6. 7 are in good agreement with experimental data. 2. Etching in KOH A water solution of potassium hydroxide with additives, the mixture anisotropically etching silicon, is most often used in silicon microsystem technology. This is a result of many advantageous features of this solution: it is cheap and easy 30 Chapter 3 accessible, stable and inert in air in a wide range of temperatures, in the anhydrous state it can be stored for many years without losing its quality, it is relatively not very toxic, sufficiently selective to SiO and very highly selective 2 to Si N masks, and inert to glass technological apparatus in which the etching 3 4 process is most often carried out.

G. [28–31]). In spite of many advantageous features of this solution, especially its high selectivity to SiO and 2 inertness to thin-film metallic connections of integrated circuits, strongly carcinogenic and explosive properties of this solution stopped its wider application in silicon micromechanics. Solutions based on ethylene-diamine and pyrocatechol with pyrazine (EDP) have been applied in many processes [32–37]. EDP shows very good compatibility to CMOS technology. Particularly significant is a very good selectivity of this solution to SiO (2000:1) and aluminum (few hundreds:1).
