    Abstract: Methods for bonding semiconductor wafers requiring the transfer of electrical and optical signals between the bonded wafers and across the bonding interface. The methods incorporate the formation of both electrical and optical interconnect vias within the wafer bonding interface to transfer electrical and optical signals between the bonded wafers. The electrical vias are formed using multiplicity of metal posts each comprised of multiple layers of metal that are interfused across the bonding surface. The optical vias are formed using multiplicity of optical waveguides each comprised of a dielectric material that interfuses across the bonding interface and having an index of refraction that is higher than the index of refraction of the dielectric intermediary bonding layer between the bonded wafers. The electrical and optical vias are interspersed across the bonding surface between the bonded wafers to enable uniform transfer of both electrical and optical signals between the bonded wafers.

  • Publication number: 20140299884
    Abstract: An electronic device may have a flexible display with portions that are bent along a bend axis. The display may have display circuitry such as an array of display pixels in an active area. Contact pads may be formed in an inactive area of the display. Signal lines may couple the display pixels to the contact pads. The signal lines may overlap the bend axis in the inactive area of the display. During fabrication, an etch stop may be formed on the display that overlaps the bend axis. The etch stop may prevent over etching of dielectric such as a buffer layer on a polymer flexible display substrate. A layer of polymer that serves as a neutral stress plane adjustment layer may be formed over the signal lines in the inactive area of the display. Upon bending, the neutral stress plane adjustment layer helps prevent stress in the signal lines.

    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention describe photonic integrated circuits (PICs) formed using simultaneous fabrication operations performed on photonic device layers. Each device of a PIC may be made from different optimized materials by growing the materials separately, cutting pieces of the different materials and bonding these pieces to a shared wafer. Embodiments of the invention bond photonic device layers so that shared (i.e., common) processing operations may be utilized to make more than one device simultaneously. Embodiments of the invention allow for simpler, more cost effective fabrication of PICs and improve photonic device performance and reliability.
