Paper Abstract

In this paper we present preliminary experimental results of static thermal mapping for the characterization of thermal properties of single or multilayer thin film membranes. Based on direct radiometric measurement, the proposed system is able to acquire, with high spatial (less than 10 micrometers ) and quite good temperature (less than 0.1 degree(s)C) resolution, the temperature maps. The results, reported here, confirm its capability. We tested a low stress LPCVD SiN membrane heated by means of a LPCVD polysilicon (PS) resistor. The experimental results obtained are in qualitative agreement with theoretical previsions.
