Abstract:Capillary bonding of glass tubes to silicon wafers has been elaborated. After proper preparation, tubes are placed on silicon substrates and specimens are annealed at sintering temperatures of glass. The resulting interconnect is capable of working above 70 bars of filling pressure and
the bond is completely hermetic. However, due to high
temperature annealing in air, surface devitrification has been observed on glass, which can be avoided by vacuum
