The Toronto Microfluidics Foundry is a flexible environment for the fabrication and integration of polymer-based microfluidic devices and complements ECTI, the central cleanroom facility at the University of Toronto. Users need to be trained according to the UofT Health and Safety regulations as well as individually at the equipment and need to attend monthly user meetings. Fulfilling these requirements is a prerequisite for maintaining active user status.

News

[Axel] Our next Foundry Meeting will take place on Tuesday July 15, 2008. Please make sure to attend.

[Sanjesh] Computer and Camera for microscope in the Foundry have been temporarily moved. Please contact Sanjesh if you have questions or concerns (8-3050). [update] - There is another computer there, but camera shall be brought back soon (within the next week or so).

Location

Haultain Building, Room HA311 (416) 946-8210

When I was using Plasm cleaner, initially no plasma produced. Found that the tube line of the Plasma cleaner is disconnected to the oven, it is not working since the vacuum is not high enough. After connecting the tube, it works well. Just remind everyone, check the line and make sure it is not disconnected.

Note: Changed the nitrogen tank for the spinner

IMPORTANT: I found the spinner in a real mess. There was resist *everywhere*. I changed the Aluminum foil liner, but there was so much SU-8 (?) there that it had already seeped through the liner, and formed a big puddle in the black bowl underneath. If whoever's made the mess could please take out that bowl and get rid of all the gunk, it would be appreciated. And please, PLEASE change the Aluminum foil liner EVERY TIME you use the spinner. It's so much easier to clean that way.

Purchasing Photomasks

--Microart Services Inc.---------- Tel: 905 709 2244 Fax: 905 709 1873 50 West Beaver Creek, Richmond Hill, ON, L4B 1G5

Steps: 1 - Convert your file into a .gerber file. I use LinkCad.

2 - Send your file to padplot@primus.ca

3 - Call the company and tell him about it, make sure he knows where to ship it, etc.

4 - When you recieve the invoice & photomask, have Sheila Baker send a cheque out to him. The company only accepts cheques. You'll need Axel to sign the invoice with an account #.

Ships in 1 day, comes the next day.


--www.photoplotstore.com-------------------- 1-888-821-1748 they're based somewhere in the US

Steps: 1 - Convert your file to .gerber

2 - Click the grid size you want (ie 1/8 mil, 1/20 mil), it should be the first thing you see under "Precision Laser Photoplots". also, 1 mil = 25 um

3 - Upload your file

4 - Fill out the payment form

5 - Call him (cuz last time i didn't and he didn't do anything)

Also ships in 1 day, comes next day.


I find Microart has better quality transparencies, but www.photoplotstore.com has higher precision photoplotters.

A. TO FABRICATE STRAIGHT WALL ON THICK SU-8 SAMPLE

Problem: The features has a large overhanging edge near the top; the walls were slanted

Cause: the photomask was not pressed firmly against the photofilm which causes UV light to leak around the photomask apertures

Solution: before exposure, cover the photomask with a large piece of 3x2 inches glass. Then, apply two thick stacks (10-15) microscope slides on either sides of the cover glass to be used as weight.

Protocol:

Dehydration bake:

1. Dehydration bake @ 200 degrees for about 15 minutes

Spincoating:

1. 500RPM DWELL: 10s ACCELERATION: 10s

2. 2000RPM DWELL: 30s ACCELERATION: 5s

3. 0RPM DWELL: 0s ACCELERATION: 10s

Pre-exposure bake:

1. 7 minutes @ 65 degrees

2. 20 minutes @ 95 degrees

3. allowed to cool to room temperature

Exposure:

1. cover the photomask as described above

2. UV exposure for 20 seconds

Post-exposure bake:

1. 2 minutes @ 65 degrees

2. 7 minutes @ 95 degrees

3. 2 minutes @ 65 degrees

Develop:

1. Develop in 20ml of developer with mild to strong agitation for 20 minutes

2. Replace with 20ml of fresh developer

3. Develop further for another 20 minutes


An excel file with a fairly generic parameter table has been created on the desktop of the common computer in the fabrication lab. If you could input all your SU-8 fabrication data there, it'd be very useful. Thanks, Chris.

LAB SAFETY

Access to the foundry requires users to be complient with the UofT health and Safety regulations and to be individually trained by a member of Dr. Guenther's group at the equipment. Users that don't fulfill these requirements are denied access.

Waste will be picked up from the Foundry on every second Monday starting March 10, 2008.
