In this paper, wafer-to-wafer AuSi eutectic bonding was investigated and evaluated with various sets of experimental parameters. Single crystalline Si and amorphous Si were bonded with different dimension Au layers and observed by optical measurements. Material composition, adhesion layer, electrical insulation, bonding parameters, and surface pre-treatments were discussed and have improved bonding performance. Bond strength determined by micro-chevron-test and shear test was evaluated as well as hermeticity. High bond yield was achieved with 4 inch and 6 inch wafer stacks.
