Abstract

Stress induced by Focused Ion Beam (FIB) milling of cantilevers fabricated on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafer has been studied. Milling induces stress gradients ranging from -10MPa/μm to -120MPa/μm, depending on the location of cantilevers from the point of milling. Simulations were done to estimate the stress in the milled cantilevers.
