Abstract
DEM (Deepetching, Electroforming and Microreplication) technique is a new three-dimensional micro fabrication technique for non-silicon materials developed by present authors. This technique has the advantages of lower cost and shorter process period than LIGA technique. In the present research, we developed micro flowmeters and microlenses using DEM technique. The chambers of micro flowmeters have a thickness of 160 microns and the diameters of micro impellers were from 0.5 to 2 mm. The micro flowmeter chambers were from transparent polymers and fabricated using microreplication process. DEM technique offers a new way for fabrication of MEMS and MOEMS components.
