Ultrasonic micro sensors with piezoelectric diaphragms were fabricated to investigate the relationship between vibration mode and device structure of electrode and the diaphragms. Samco Deep Reactive Ion Etching system was used for anisotropic silicon plasma etching in the Bosch Process over SiO2 mask.
