A*STAR: Aluminium–germanium sealant toughens MEMS
A team of researchers at A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics has investigated a couple of metal alloys that could give micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) sensors better protection in the toughest environments.
They wanted to find cheaper, more durable alternatives to the metal solders, such as gold-tin or copper-tin, which are typically used to seal the case.
