[mems-talk] Using DAD3220 Dicing Saw without water and air flow

Dear mems-talk community,
We have a standard Si wafer that we would like to dice into smaller 1cm x
1cm square pieces.

The challenge is below:
1. We have very delicate structures on the Si wafer. So, we cannot flow
*strong* air and/or water on Si wafer while dicing. The *strong* flow of
air/wafer damages the delicate structures.* Here, it is very important to
emphasize that, the main contributors to the damage are strong water flow
and/or strong air flow.*

As part of the solution,
We can sacrifice a blade of a dicing saw (~30 USD), and just try to dice
the wafer without water/air flow. However, we are concerned that we may be
damaging more than just the blade of the dicing saw when we do not let
air/water flow during dicing. In case you wonder, the dicing saw is from
DISCO, and the type is DAD3220.

Also,
We may try spinning photoresist on the wafer to protect the delicate
structures, but we are reluctant about spinning photoresist as well, due to
some requirements on the final structures.

Any comments from you who might have had this or similar experience in the
past or currently, would really be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Mehmet Yilmaz
Mechanical Engineer

Hi all-

I am trying to create a 1mm thick substrate for a solar roof tile using a
nanoceramic.

Roofers will walk on it and open to ideas on how to get good flexural
strength.

Also- It will
have to bond to glass which will encapsulate the solar cells. I would
appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

[mems-talk] AZ5214E photoresist adhesion problem on Al2O3 coated Si wafers

Hi All

I face a problem of keeping AZ5214e photoresist on top of Al2O3 film during BHF etch. 
I have done post bake of PR at 150C for 30 min however it still does not help. 
Does any of you know the solution or any idea how to keep PR On top of alumina during BHF etch?

Thank you in advance 

Best regards

[mems-talk] Anodic wafer bonding of silicon to Pyrex

Dear mems-talk community,

Question about anodic wafer bonding of "silicon to aluminum oxide
coated borosilicate glass (Pyrex)"

We are planning to wafer bond silicon wafer surface to borosilicate glass
substrate surface via anodic bonding. It seems that this is well known, and
documented. Although it is well known, this may bring some complications to
our integration process flow. Because of these complications, we are
looking for alternative approaches that may be tried to reduce the
complications in the integration process.

An idea that we have that will reduce some process steps and complications
is below:

Our integration process directs us to think about wafer bonding of silicon
substrate to 15nm aluminum oxide coated borosilicate glass (Pyrex). In case
you wonder, 15nm aluminum oxide is ALD (Atomic layer Deposition) coated on
Pyrex.

We wonder if anyone of you have any experience with wafer bonding of
silicon substrate to aluminum oxide coated borosilicate glass (Pyrex), or a
similar material stack? If you do not have direct experience, comments
based on your anodic wafer bonding experience are also very welcome.

Regards, and thanks in advance,

Mehmet Yilmaz
Mechanical Engineer
