performed to manufacture a pressure sensor for oil well monitoring. A
bond strength (Si/SiO2) of 5-15 MPa is achieved after annealing at
1000oC. The aluminum contact pads were applied by sputtering through a
mechanical mask prebonded onto the triple stack. The sensor withstands
an absolute pressure of 1000 Bar, and it can be operated at 200oC. A
zero shift of less than 2,5% of FSO is observed.
