Micromachined Arrays as Sensor Platforms and Materials Research Tools
Stephen Semancik, Richard E. Cavicchi
We describe temperature-controlled elements called microhotplates which are formed by micromachining Si, as well as thin film deposition methods and interfacial phenomena, utilized to create low power, application-tunable microdevices for analyzing gases and vapors. We emphasize the adaptability of the MEMS microhotplate platforms for performing varied temperature-dependent functions, and also illustrate how microarrays can be used as research tools for efficient materials processing / property studies and investigations of transient surface effects.
