This comprehensive book provides an overview of the key techniques used in the fabrication of micron-scale structures in silicon. Recent advances in these techniques have made it possible to create a new generation of microsystem devices, such as microsensors, accelerometers, micropumps, and miniature robots. The authors underpin the discussion of each technique with a brief review of the fundamental physical and chemical principles involved. They pay particular attention to methods such as isotropic and anisotropic wet chemical etching, wafer bonding, reactive ion etching, and surface micromachining. There is a special section on bulk micromachining, and the authors also discuss release mechanisms for movable microstructures. The book is a blend of detailed experimental and theoretical material, and will be of great interest to graduate students and researchers in electrical engineering and materials science whose work involves the study of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).

'This book has many admirable properties. It covers the chosen subject in considerable detail and brings together much of the state-of-the-art. The illustrations and photographs are of very high quality and indeed the whole book is well presented. It will be useful to both the experienced engineer wishing to sort out a few problems in his own work and to those requiring an introduction to silicon microengineering' Professor R. A. Lawes, Engineering Science and Education Journal
