Deposition

The coating of silicon or glass substrates is conducted through chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The process produces pure, high-performance and strong materials.

Deposion layers are used in MEMS devices and structured in subsequent process steps. In microfluidic devices the process is applied as well.

The Following Technologies are Applied

Plasma Deposition – PECVD

  • Oxide (LF/HF)
  • Nitride (LF/HF)
  • Silicon-oxynitride (definded adjustable refractive index / tension)

Furnace Processes

  • Wet oxidation
  • Dry oxidation
  • Annealing
