Paper Abstract

This paper describes the formation and application of reversible low temperature bonds for fabrication of 3D microelectronic structures. The basis of this reversible bond is a three-step low temperature bonding process. This tree-step process consists of 1) pressure, 2) pressure and temperature and 3) temperature. The first and second steps of this process create a uniform, void free, weak bond that can be easily severed. The third step consists of a long anneal at 200 degrees C that creates a bond of strength greater than 1000 ergs/cm2. The reversibility and reusability of a bond processed through the first and second step of the three-step process is investigated in this paper.
