MEMS Materials and Processes: a research overview
Author(s)Spearing, S. Mark
An overview is provided of materials and processes research currently being conducted in support of MEMS device design at MIT. Underpinning research is being conducted in five areas: room temperature strength characterization, elevated temperature strength characterization, processing of Si/SiC hybrid structures, modeling of wafer bonding processes and development of high temperature fluid interconnections. Emphasis is placed on the key areas of materials science and engineering.
