3. Thin Film Stress Upon release of the structure in problem 1, the 200 µm long suspension beams expand 0.15 µm to completely relieve their stress. If the Young’s modulus of the POLY1 layer was 190 GPa as-deposited, answer the following: a) Was POLY1 under compressive or tensile stress? b) What is the value of the residual stress? 4. Processing The above figure from Senturia is a clear conceptual illustration of a surface micromachining process, but it is somewhat lacking in practicality.
