Abstract:This article presents microchannel thermal flow sensors fabricated using standard micromachining technology. The sensors comprise of a SiXNY microchannel created by etching of a poly-Si sacrificial layer. The channels are released by KOH etching through inlets and outlets etched from the backside of the substrate. Liquid flow is measured by platinum resistors deposited on top of the microchannel, while the channel is thermally isolated from the substrate by a SiXNY membrane. Flow rates of DI water in the order of nl⋅min-1 have been measured using a dynamic sensing method applying heat waves.
