Abstract
The Nanoscale Design and Manufacturing Laboratory (NDML) at the University of Texas at Austin focuses on the design and development of novel processes and equipment for the manufacturing of micro and nanoscale devices and structures. The first half of this talk will focus on a new microscale additive manufacturing process, known as microscale selective laser sintering (?-SLS), that has been developed in the NDML for the fabrication of 3D electronic interconnect structures with micron scale resolutions. In this process, a thin layer of nanoparticle ink is first spread onto the substrate. The substrate is then positioned under an optical subsystem using a custom built nanopositioning device. A laser that has been focused off a micromirror array is then used to sinter the nanoparticles together in a desired pattern with micrometer resolution. Another layer is then coated onto the substrate and the process is repeated to build up the 3D structure. Finally, the unsintered nanoparticles are washed away to reveal the final 3D part. This talk will present the materials science, mechatronic systems, optics designs, and process modeling used to make this additive manufacturing process capable of achieving micrometer resolution with high throughput (~63 mm3/h) over large areas (~ 50 mm x 50 mm).
 
The second half of this presentation will focus on two projects related to the manufacturing of high quality, flexible electronics: (1) A new roll-to-roll metrology framework for the manufacturing of flexible electronics devices and (2) A new method to precisely exfoliate thin sheets of silicon from bulk silicon wafers. These two projects represent two different approaches to solving the challenge of producing flexible electronics that can compete on performance with conventionally manufactured electronics. The roll-to-roll metrology project tackles the problems currently present in the patterning of repeatable and uniform nanoscale structures on flexible substrates by enabling process control feedback in the roll-to-roll nanopatterning process. This is done by integrating compact, MEMS-based, single chip atomic force microscopes (sc-AFMs) with high scanning speeds directly into a new roll-to-roll metrology framework that greatly increases the throughput and modularity of direct, nanometer-scale measurement on flexible substrates. The exfoliation project takes the opposite approach by taking electronic structures that have been fabricated on conventional silicon substrates and making them flexible by making the silicon layer extremely thin (<5?m). This processes uses a compressive nickel film to create a stress concentration below the top surface of the wafer and polymer film with controlled tension to propagate a crack along this stress concentration. The advantage of this process is that it allows us to cheaply take electronics that have been fabricated using traditional manufacturing processes on bulk silicon wafers and turn them into flexible electronics using just one additional processing step. The presentation will conclude with some thoughts on the future directions of next generation of electronic devices from a manufacturing prospective.
