Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Microdischarge device structures were designed to obtain cavity dimensions down to 10 μm. Microdrilling was performed through a metal/polymer/metal thin layered structure. Microelectromechanical system techniques were used for design and fabrication of microdischarge devices with a cavity width in 10 ∼ 50 μm diameter. The total emission from the cavity was measured to be 4.7 μW in a solid angle of 5 × 10-2.
