Transfer of Functional Ceramic Thin Films Using a Thermal Release Process

Authors


Abstract

A simple, solder-based bonding and lift-off process for transfer of functional ceramic thin films is demonstrated. The process allows transfer of thin films from a growth wafer onto a target substrate in a single step, with separation from the growth substrate being driven by induced stresses during soldering. Free-standing films can also be produced.
