Paper Abstract

For several applications, micro cells with a uniform temperature profile and at least one optical port are required. One example for those cells is the physics package of a chip-scale-atomic-clock. It is necessary that the micro chambers are heated homogeneously to 353 K using a low energy consumption heater. In this work transparent heating structures are investigated to achieve this goal. First an analytical approach is used to describe the behavior of thermal energy dissipation of the heating structures. Then different approaches of possible heater structures are simulated to find the optimal basic configuration. Furthermore, this configuration is optimized to obtain a uniform temperature distribution in the whole cell.
