  • Publication number: 20110018077
    Abstract: A semiconductor pressure sensor includes a single crystal silicon substrate, a diaphragm, four diaphragm side walls enclosing the diaphragm, and a bridge circuit. The diaphragm is formed in the silicon substrate by etching the silicon substrate from a lower surface side of the silicon substrate. The diaphragm has a (110) plane orientation and a substantially parallelogram shape. The four diaphragm side walls have a (111) plane orientation and form two pairs of substantially parallel and opposite surfaces. The bridge circuit is formed on an upper surface of the silicon substrate. The bridge circuit includes a lead conductor and a strain gauge resistor. The bridge circuit is configured to detect pressure applied to the pressure sensor based on a change in an output value of the bridge circuit corresponding to an amount of flexure produced in the diaphragm by the pressure.

  • Patent number: 7488559
    Abstract: The solid electrolyte of the present invention is composed of an organic/inorganic composite material having pores with a mean pore diameter of 1 to 30 nm and having a skeleton comprising a metal atom, an oxygen atom bonded to the metal atom, and an organic group having at least one carbon atom bonded to the metal atom or the oxygen atom, and a functional group having an ion exchange function and bonded to the organic group inside the pores. As a result, even if the relative pressure of the water vapor in the atmosphere is less than 1.0, it is still possible to achieve a solid electrolyte with a sufficiently high ion conductivity at a lower temperature than with a conventional solid electrolyte such as stabilized zirconia.
