[mems-talk] circular lens shaped defects in KOH etching

Hi all,

I am looking for some advice on the avoidance of surface defects when etching silicon with KOH.

We are using a pretty standard KOH etch (80°C, 40%) to etch large surface areas down by about 100µm on
standard SSP (100) silicon material.
We are looking for smooth surface after etching the polished wafer side. Mostly this works quite well but
sometimes we do see the formation of small point defects all over the wafer, tpyically in a radial distribution.

These defects are small recesses (not hillocks) in the range of 10-50µm diameter, perfectly circular
shaped (unlike you would expect in anisotropic etching). The depth of the structure is very low (we assess
to <100nm) but clearly visible macroscopically and in the microscope.
We see different sizes of these defects leading us to believe that this is not an effect started on the
surface but is a volume effect (the 'early' defects becoming larger as we etch down).

We do batch processing and sometimes complete batches are affected, sometimes only a few wafers out of the
batch. So we would link this mainly to the silicon material and not to the process. For this we control the
material spec closely and the wafers should be very much identical. As we fear an influence by doping the
resistivity is defined to be ~10 Ohmcm.

Our material supplier is puzzled as well. As we do see a mainly radial distribution of defect occurrence
(typical max in the center area, sometimes donut shaped).
Could this maybe be an effect from polishing the wafers in manufacturing which is sometimes more severe? 
Any ideas are welcome!

Thanks & best regards
Ulli

Featured Event

This event will focus on MEMS and sensor technologies for medical applications. The medical MEMS and sensor market size is currently approximately $2.1 billion. In these applications, it is advantageous to miniaturize currently available components and systems due to form factor and cost considerations. Furthermore, many applications are newly enabled by MEMS technologies and would not be possible at all without miniaturization.

Hello,

Can I know where is there any articles regarding silicon nitride surface properties?
And, is silicon nitride hydrophilic as well?

Thank you.

[mems-talk] su-8 2002 removal method

I used SU-8 2002 for sacrificial layer(about 2um).

after whole process is finished, I want to remove SU-8 layer.

but, it is very hard. I used Remover PG(80℃, 30min) but it is indissolubleness(?).

For forming mems sensor, the metal layers are deposited around a SU-8 layer.

So I want to remove SU-8 2002 without damages of other structures.

How can I do it?
