Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Micro systems which are small sized but relatively complicated intelligent systems were fabricated based on bulk silicon micromachining. Extremely sensitive sensors with thin beam structure, packaged micromechanical sensors for inertia measurement, microactuators as microvalve and optical scanner and active catheter which moves flexibly like a snake in a blood vessel were developed Silicon nano-wire growth by electric field evaporation using UHV STM and novel three-dimensional micromachining as deep RIE were developed for the fabrication of the microsystems.
