To form silicon dioxide on a silicon substrate. Using physical vapor deposition (PVD) processes, materials are released from sources and transferred to the substrates. Usually, by using PVD it is impossible to attain good thin film characteristics. However, PVD allows one to fabricate affordable microstructures. The basic PVD methods are evaporation and sputtering. Applying evaporation techniques, one places the substrate in a vacuum chamber, in which a source of the material to be deposited is located.

In microaccelerometers, computing, signal conditioning, filtering, input/output interfacing and data acquisition are performed by ICs. In the ADL-series accelerometers, these ICs are built using thousands of transistors. Microelectromechanical systems contain microscale subsystems, devices, and structures designed and manufactured using different technologies, techniques, processes, and materials. A single silicon substrate can be used to fabricate microscale actuators, sensors, and ICs as the monolithic MEMS using the modified CMOS-based microfabrication technologies, techniques, and Chapter two: New Trends in Engineering and Science: MEMS and NEMS 37 processes.

The antiferromagnetic coupling in multilayered Fe/Cr thin films has initiated intensive studies of thin multilayered nanostructures consisting of ferromagnetic and nonferromagnetic thin films. , Cr, Cu, and Re thin films. The GMR phenomenon is associated with the spin dependent scattering of the conduction electrons and changes in the relative band structure. The electrical resistance is due to scattering of electrons within a material. Depending on the magnetic direction, a single-domain magnetic material will scatter electrons with up or down spin differently.
