Wet Bench Flexcorr 3 (wbflexcorr-3)


This wet bench is used for wet chemical (corrosives) processing of standard and non-standard (flexible) materials like glass, wafer pieces, devices with gold or non-standard metals. It is also used for non-CMOS compatible processing, such as KOH etching. With the appropriate, dedicated glassware, KOH cleanup can be done to decontaminate wafers for later CMOS-compatible processing.


Capabilities and Specifications


Manual wet etching of non-standard materials using acids or bases. Hot Plate available. GaAs not allowed.

Steps to become a tool user

  1. Become a member of SNF.
  1. Study the relevant operating procedures:
  2. Shadowing is required. Contact a qualified lab member of the tool to arrange to ‘shadow’. It would be best to find someone who has used the system often. If you don’t know of anyone, you may check reservations or history to find a qualified user. We recommend that you be with the lab member for the full time while operating the tool and ask lots of questions during the shadowing. You may have to shadow a qualified user more than one time to be comfortable with the tool. Please follow the instructions on this form: Shadowing at SNF
  3. For upcoming training check the Training dashboard (login required).
  4. Contact the primary trainer: Uli Thumser
