  • The technology of microelectronics that has evolved over the past half century is one of great power and sophistication and can now be extended to many applications (MEMS and MOEMS) other than electronics. An interesting application of MEMS quantum devices is the detection of electromagnetic radiation. The operation principle of MEMS quantum devices is based on the photoinduced stress in semiconductors, and the photon detection results from the measurement of the photoinduced bending. These devices can be described as micromechanical photon detectors. In this work, we have developed a technique for simulating electronic stresses using finite element analysis. We havemore » used our technique to model the response of micromechanical photon devices to external stimuli and compared these results with experimental data. Material properties, geometry, and bimaterial design play an important role in the performance of micromechanical photon detectors. We have modeled these effects using finite element analysis and included the effects of bimaterial thickness coating, effective length of the device, width, and thickness.« less
  • A release etch model for etching sacrificial oxides in aqueous HF solutions is presented. This model is an extension of work done by Monk et al. and Liu et al. The model is inherently one dimensional, but can be used to model the etching of complex three dimensional parts. Solutions and boundary conditions are presented for a number of geometries. Knowledge of release-etch kinetics is essential for designing manufacturing processes for large surface micromachined structures such as sealed diaphragms and cavities and flow channels.
  • Using micromachined silicon wafers, the authors have fabricated three-dimensional photonic bandgap crystals. Terahertz spectroscopy techniques have been used to measure bandgap frequencies over 500 GHz.
