Poly-SiGe micro-mirror array for photomask writers As part of its CMORE initiative, IMEC is to present details of a new Poly-SiGe-based micro-mirror array that could be used for photomask writers and other industrial applications. IMEC said that its 10cm² 11 megapixel mirror array has a pixel density nearly twice that of comparable state-of-the-art micro-mirrors.

Using Poly-SiGe materials means that improvements in reliability and stability have been made. IMEC fabricated the 8μm x 8μm mirror arrays on top of foundry high-voltage 0.18µm CMOS 200mm wafers with 6 interconnect levels.
