Paper Abstract

High Resistivity (HiRes(TM)) silicon (Resistivity ≥ 8000 Ohm-cm) is demonstrated as the best choice of microwave substrate for emerging radio frequency (RF) MEMS devices operating at GHz/THz frequencies. The potential combination of active devices with passive MEMS structures allows single-chip realization of complete and cost effective microwave and millimeter wave systems. High Transparency (HiTran) silicon is demonstrated as the best choice of infrared material for systems working in the 3-5 micron region and for some type of systems working in the 8-12 micron region provided than thickness of the HiTran material does not exceed 2 mm.
