New Trends In Wafer Bonding
Wafer-to-wafer bonding is preferable to chip-to-chip or chip-to-wafer bonding because it offers high throughput and simplifies alignment between the layers of the structure. Generally speaking, the bonding surfaces need to be planar and clean. Topography ...

thumbnailTechnion, Bar-Ilan U. create protein administration chip for Alzheimer's treatment
Medication that, up until now, has been difficult to administer for the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease, has just been made useful by using a nanoscale silicone chip to "trick" the blood-brain barrier (BBB) into allowing entry of the drug, according to new research by the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in partnership with Bar-Ilan ...

Microfabrication Inside Capillaries Using Multiphase Laminar Flow Patterning
The reaction of species in solutions flowing laminarly (without turbulent mixing) inside capillaries was used as the basis for a broadly applicable method of microfabrication. In this method, patterning occurs as a result of transport of reactive species ...

thumbnailReplication of a Printed Volatile Mold: a novel microfabrication method for advanced microfluidic systems
A novel and simple method to fabricate microchannels is reported based on an inkjet printing of a volatile solid mold. A liquid ink -1,6 hexanediol- ejected from a piezoelectric nozzle is instantaneously frozen when touching a cooled substrate. The created mold is then poured with PDMS. Once the PDMS is crosslinked, the ink is sublimated and ...

thumbnailObserving flow distribution over curved surfaces
Consequently, precise monitoring is crucial to reduce or even prevent the flow separation effect. Current flow monitoring relies on bulk silicon-based microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology. However, conventional MEMS-based flow sensors have the disadvantage of disturbing the nature of the initial air flow during the large-area flow ...

Why Increase in Demand for Quartz MEMS Hampers the Crystal Oscillator Market?
However, the evolution of other technologies for oscillators such as si-MEMS technologies restrains the market growth. Although the increase in demand for quartz MEMS technology provides new opportunities for growth. In technologies, temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) holds the largest share, in terms of revenue, in overall ... 2019-11-25 - MEMS business
