January 7th, 2018 - Functional Devices Laboratory (FDL), Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA) UPM has successfully organized a Porous Silicon Fabrication Workshop on 7th and 8th January 2018 at ITMA, UPM. A total number of 20 participants from various faculties and institutes from inside and outside UPM participated in this workshop.
This workshop was facilitated by Dr. Tevhit Karacali from Ataturk University, Erzurum Turkey. The first day of the workshop started with an introduction of Porous Silicon (PS). The interest on PS increased because the high surface area of porous silicon was found to be useful as a model of the crystalline silicon surface in spectroscopic studies, as a precursor to generate thick oxide layers on silicon, and as a dielectric layer in capacitance based chemical sensors . The session was continued with hands-on demonstration on PS sample preparation and fabrication. FESEM characterization was done on the sample to verify the output result.
This workshop was a success with participants gaining new knowledge on the Porous Silicon technology. It is hoped that this workshop will inspire participants to diversify the use of PS into different applications in the future.
