The AZ 5214E Resist in EBDW Lithography and its Use as a RIE Etch–Mask in Etching Thin Ag Layers in N2 Plasma

Abstract

In this article we describe the electron-beam direct-write (EBDW) lithography process for the AZ 5214E photoresist which is, besides its sensitivity to UV radiation, sensitive also to electrons. An adapted process flow is provided. At the same time we examine the resistance of this resist to RIE and its suitability as an etch-mask for etching thin Ag layers in N2 plasma. A comparison with several chosen resists (PMMA, ma-2405, ma-N 1402, SU-8 2000) is provided.

Design and simulation of microfluidic device for metabolite screening and quantitative monitoring of drug uptake in cancer cells

-out metabolites from cells as a result of drug exposure in order to confirm the quantitative results once again using LC-MS analysis. The materials used for the microfluidics chips are SU-8 photoresist compound, PGMEA developer, PDMS base and agent. The fluids for testing simulations are vegetable oil and water, while the real time application materials are targeted as cultured cancer cells, specialized drugs, and a growth medium. Implementation and Experimentation Several geometries with different dimensions were initially designed and optimized in order to come up

using positive photoresist and then the Cr and Au layers were selectively removed by wet etching process to define the metal patterns on the substrate. Finally, a second lithography step was performed to apply another photosensitive polymer (SU8) layer as passivation coating over the metal electrodes. In this step, only the electrode sensors and contact pads were exposed to make contact with the electrolyte as shown in Fig.1 . Fig.1 Microphotograph of different three-electrode devices. The photoresist was hard baked to impart stability and inertness to

mask and cut to size before being attached to the substrate using double sided 10 μm thickness adhesive tape (Adhesives Research, USA). The geometry of the electrodes is shown in Fig. 3 : Fig. 3 Schematic and geometry of the impedance sensor. The PDMS layer was formed by first creating a negative master mould from SU-8 2150 (Microchem, USA). The 500 μm thick SU-8 mould was patterned using photo-lithography on a silicon wafer. The PDMS was formed from a two part mix (Sylgard 184, Dow Corning, USA) and poured into the mould and left to cure and outgas for
