Dear Labmembers,

I would like to be able to etch silicon on SOI pieces. While I'm waiting 
for the SOI wafers to arrive, I'm testing the process flow with full 
silicon wafers. I have used P5000 to etch silicon on full wafers, and 
the results look alright. Which tools do you use to do silicon etching 
on pieces with PMMA on them? What kind of problems do/did you face?

I'd appreciate any information you can provide. If you could reply to my 
email ( kocabas at ), I'll compile the answers in a nice form 
and send it to the labmembers list.

Thank you,


PS: I sent a very similar email to the Raith list earlier today. It was 
recommended that I send the email to the general labmembers email list. 
I'm sorry for the duplicate emails that raith at snf members received.
