Tensile strength evaluation of free-standing silicon nanowire integrated to MEMS


  Silicon nanowire has excellent mechanical and electrical properties and is expected to be applies as nanostructure element of various devices. To realize them and improve their reliability, it is necessary to reveal mechanical properties of SiNW fabricated by the process used in fabricating of actual devices. In this research, for tensile strength evaluation of SiNW, the integration process of SiNW to MEMS is developed and tensile test of the SiNW is conducted.
