Introduction to Microsystem Technology: A Guide for Students
This textbook focuses on the essentials of microsystems technology, providing a knowledgeable grounding and a clear path through this well-established scientific dicipline. With a methodical, student-orientated approach, Introduction to Microsystem Technology covers the following:
- microsystem materials (including silicon, polymers and thin films), and the scaling effects of going micro;
- fabrication techniques based on different material properties, descriptions of their limitations and functional and shape elements produced by these techniques;
- sensors and actuators based on elements such as mechanical, fluidic, and thermal (yaw rate sensor components are described);
- the influence of technology parameters on microsystem properties, asking, for example, when is the function of a microsystem device robust and safe?
The book presents problems at the end of each chapter so that you may test your understanding of the key concepts (full solutions for these are given on an accompanying website). Practical examples are included also, as well as case studies that enable a better understanding of the technology as a whole. With its extensive treatment on the fundamentals of microsystem technology, this book also serves as a compendium for engineers and technicians working with microsystem technology.
