Abstract:SU-8 is often used as a structural material in microsystems. In this work the outgassing characteristics from such cross-linked SU-8 layers are studied using Mass Spectrometry and Gas Chromatography techniques. With these methods the composition of the released matter can be identified, also the outgassing rate can be quantitatively characterized. A qualitative estimate of outgassing from SU-8 is given for cross-linked layers. The effect of Hard-Bakes is studied in situ by measuring at typical Hard-Bake temperatures. These tests indicate that a Hard-Bake is needed to provide good performance in UHV environments. Using Gas-Chromatography the outgassing rate from SU-8 is determined. The total outgassing rate is inversely proportional with time which further illustrates the effect of a hard-bake step.
