  • Publication number: 20210035799
    Abstract: A recess is formed in one silicon substrate. A silicon oxide film is formed in another one silicon substrate at a portion space apart from a space-to-be-formed region. The silicon oxide film has a groove surrounding the space-to-be-formed region and extending to an outer periphery of the other one silicon substrate. Further, the other one silicon substrate and the one silicon substrate are directly bonded to each other via the silicon oxide film so as to cover the groove. A gas discharge passage, a stacking structure of the silicon substrates and the silicon oxide film are formed, and the space is formed inside the stacking structure by the recess. Then, by the heat treatment, the gas inside the space is discharged to the outside of the stacking structure through the gas discharge passage.
