  1. 1. Thin-film ultraviolet light-emitting diodes realized by electrochemical etching of AlGaN

    Author : Michael Alexander Bergmann; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrochemical etching; substrate removal; thin-film flip-chip; thermocompression bonding; light-emitting diodes; AlGaN; heterogeneous integration; LEDs; ultraviolet light; UVB;

    Abstract : Ultraviolet (UV) light sources have a direct impact on everyone’s life. They are used to sterilize surfaces as well as for water purification. In addition, they are used in green houses to enhance health-promoting substances in plants, for phototherapy to treat skin diseases, for sensing and material curing. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for the wafer-level integration of shape memory alloy (SMA) and electrostatic actuators to functionalize MEMS devices. The integration methods are based on heterogeneous integration, which is the integration of different materials and technologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heterogeneous Integration of Shape Memory Alloysfor High-Performance Microvalves

    Author : Henrik Gradin; Göran Stemme; Peter Woias; KTH; []
    Keywords : Microelectromechanical systems; MEMS; silicon; wafer-level; integration; heterogeneous integration; wafer bonding; Au-Si; eutectic bonding; release etching; electrochemical etching; microvalves; microactuators; shape memory alloy; SMA; NiTinol; TiNi; NiTi; cold-state reset; bias spring; gate valves; wire bonding;

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for fabricating MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) actuators and high-flow gas microvalves using wafer-level integration of Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) in the form of wires and sheets. The work output per volume of SMA actuators exceeds that of other microactuation mechanisms, such as electrostatic, magnetic and piezoelectric actuation, by more than an order of magnitude, making SMA actuators highly promising for applications requiring high forces and large displacements.

  5. 5. Silicon Nanopore Arrays : Fabrication and Applications for DNA Sensing

    Author : Miao Zhang; Jan Linnros; Meni Wanunu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; nanopore; array; electrochemical etching; DNA; optics; thermophoresis;

    Abstract : Nanopore biomolecule sensing and sequencing has emerged as a simple but powerful tool for single molecule studies over the past two decades. By elec- trophoretically driving single molecules through a nanometer-sized pore, often sitting in an insulating membrane that separates two buffer solutions, ionic current blockades can be detected to reveal rich information of the molecules, such as DNA length, protein size and conformation, even nucleic acid se- quence.
