We detail here the machine and the processes we regularly support in our machine. All other process need to be discussed with the staff member before being performed in the Centre.

Brand/Model: SPTS / Rapier

Description: Silicon can be etched in an anisotropic (or isotropic) and dry way with the technology called “deep RIE”. This method combines deposition and etching plasma assisted processes. While the silicon is etched, the process enables to deposit a fluorinated component on the pattern walls in order to passivate them. Etching-deposition cycles with given gases and time enable to etch deeply and anisotropically the silicon independently of its orientation.
