Abstract

A single-chip IC-compatible silicon condenser microphone with a highly sensitive silicon nitride diaphragm and a rigid monocrystalline silicon counterelectrode with acoustic holes was designed and built. Porous silicon with its high dissolution rate in 1% KOH was used as an auxiliary sacrificial layer in combination with sputtered SiO2 to define the air gap. This results in low parasitic capacitances and a microphone structure where the diaphragm is coplanar with its suspensions. The rigid backelectrode is undistorted,the diaphragm under low tensile stress, a prerequisite for high sensitivity. Microphones of different dimensions of round and square electrodes with single diaphragms and diaphragm arrays were built and packaged in round chip carriers. The open loop sensitivity is in the mV/Pa range depending on the type of microphone. The frequency response goes beyond 25 kHz for an air gap of 1.3 mum. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
