    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

  4. 4. Wafer Bonding - Problems and Possibilities

    Author : Mats Bergh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SOI; atomic force microscope; micromechanics; compliant substrates; wafer bonding; semi-insulating silicon; AFM; surface chemistry; diamond; silicon on insulator; aluminium nitride; microelectronics; surface roughness;

    Abstract : The wafer bonding technology offers a unique opportunity to combine different materials. This has been used for the realisation of novel silicon on insulator (SOI) structures. By replacing the buried silicon dioxide layer with a polycrystalline diamond film the thermal properties of the SOI structure are improved. READ MORE

    Abstract : The field of micro total analysis systems (μTAS) aims at developments toward miniaturized and fully integrated lab-on-a-chip systems for applications, such as drug screening, drug delivery, cellular assays, protein analysis, genomic analysis and handheld point-of-care diagnostics. Such systems offer to dramatically reduce liquid sample and reagent quantities, increase sensitivity as well as speed of analysis and facilitate portable systems via the integration of components such as pumps, valves, mixers, separation units, reactors and detectors.
