Principles of Electrical Measurement

The sphere of electric size keeps to develop, with new strategies constructed every year. From the fundamental thermocouple to state of the art digital instrumentation, it's also turning into an more and more "digital" pastime. Books that try to catch the state of the art in electric dimension are fast superseded.

Example text

For example, lithographic tools used in micromachining are oftentimes from previous generations of equipment designed for the fabrication of electronic integrated circuits. The equipment’s performance is sufficient to meet the requirements of micromachining, but its price is substantially discounted. A few specialized processes, such as anisotropic chemical wet etching, wafer bonding, deep reactive ion etching, sacrificial etching, and critical-point drying, emerged over the years within the MEMS community and remain limited to micromachining in their application.

Because of the particular interactions between the crystal atoms and the conduction electrons, silicon is effective only in detecting light; emission of light is very difficult to achieve. 3). 2 µm at 436 nm (blue-violet). The slight attenuation of red light relative to other colors is what gives thin silicon membranes their translucent reddish tint. Silicon is also well known to retain its mechanical integrity at temperatures up to about 700°C [4]. At higher temperatures, silicon starts to soften and plastic deformation can occur under load.

Fabrication processes for glass and quartz are mature and well established, but for other materials, such as silicon carbide, new techniques are being explored and developed. In the process, these activities add breadth to micromachining technology and enrich the inventory of available tools. The following sections briefly review the use of a few materials other than silicon. Glass and Fused Quartz Substrates Glass is without a doubt a companion material to silicon; the two are bonded together figuratively and literally in many ways.
