Polycrystalline silicon has been a primary material used in development of mocroelectrical mechanical systems due to its attractive structural properties and compatibility with CMOS processing. Among its many applications, polysilicon is currently being employed in MEMS devices that require thermal dissipation or thermal management to ensure functionality (thermal actuators, microengines, etc.). In these applications, heat conduction in polycrystalline silicon becomes a primary factor in the design, performance, and reliability of thermal MEMS.
