Stepped-etching for preserving critical dimensions in through-wafer deep reactive ion etching of thick silicon
Alper, Said Emre; Aydemir, A.; Akın, Tayfun (2009-06-25)
This paper presents the experimental investigation of stepped deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) process in order to minimize critical-dimension (CD) variations due to local heating observed in through-wafer etch of 100 mum-thick, high aspect ratio silicon microstructures that are suspended over glass substrate. Classical methods of cooling the substrate, using a heat-sink layer, or increasing the thickness of sidewall passivation in general turns out to be insufficient for preventing excessive damage in crit...
A Method of Fabricating Vacuum Packages with Vertical Feedthroughs in a Wafer Level Anodic Bonding Process
Torunbalci, Mustafa Mert; Alper, Said Emre; Akın, Tayfun (2014-09-10)
This paper presents a new method for wafer level vacuum packaging of MEMS devices using anodic bonding together with vertical feedthroughs formed on an SOI cap wafer, eliminating the need for any sealing material or any complex via-refill or trench-refill vertical feedthrough steps. The packaging yield is experimentally verified to be above 95%, and the cavity pressure is characterized to be as low as 1 mTorr with the help of a thin-film getter. The shear strength of several packages is measured to be above...
Prediction of plastic instability and forming limits in sheet metal forming
Şanay, Berkay; Oral, Süha; Kaftanoğlu, Bilgin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
The Forming Limit Diagram (FLD) is a widely used concept to represent the formability of thin metallic sheets. In sheet metal forming processes, plastic instability may occur, leading to defective products. In order to manufacture defect free products, the prediction of the forming limits of sheet metals is a very important issue. FLD’s can be obtained by several experimental, empirical and theoretical methods. However, the suitability and the accuracy of these methods for a given material may vary. In this...
Symmetrical and decoupled nickel microgyroscope on insulating substrate
Alper, Se; Akın, Tayfun (Elsevier BV, 2004-09-21)
This paper presents a symmetrical and decoupled surface micromachined gyroscope fabricated by electroforming thick nickel on a glass substrate. The symmetric structure allows matched resonant frequencies for the drive and sense vibration modes for improved sensitivity, while the decoupled drive and sense oscillation modes prevents unstable operation due to mechanical coupling, resulting in a low zero-rate output drift. The use of a glass substrate instead of a silicon substrate reduces noise due to the para...
The staminal lever mechanism and floral diversity of some bee-pollinated Salvia L. (Lamiaceae) species
Atalay, Zeynep; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2011)
The characteristic staminal lever mechanism is defined as a functional unit including the modification of stamens into lever-like structures, their reversible movement and the organisation with the remaining floral structures and they are involved in the process of pollen transfer. The staminal levers play a major role in the process of pollen deposition on the pollinators’ body and their proportion and interaction with pollinators may have significant consequences for the pollination system in Salvia. In t...
