Deposition Technologies for Micromanufacturing: A Review
This paper discusses the microdeposition technologies used in the fabrication of meso- and microscale structures. The ability to process a wide range of materials and the flexibility to build functional and geometrically complex structures in meso- and microscale gives the microdeposition method some advantages over micromachining or lithography methods investigated extensively in the past. In this paper, work on deposition technology is reviewed, including material, supply of material, powder flow rate, and manipulation of particles and microdeposition technologies. The advantages and disadvantages of each technology are summarized at the end of the paper.
