dc.description.abstract The focus of this thesis involves developing general fabrication processes relevant to the manufacture of two new devices for the Microscale technology Energy and Chemical Systems (MECS) program at Oregon State University. The two MECS devices developed, capture dots and transparent thin-film heaters (TTFHs), require unique process development for successful manufacture. Thick photolithography is required for the capture dots and its development is detailed. The capture dots also require copper electroplating. The copper electroplating system and process development are detailed. The TTFHs require a unique heater material, indium tin oxide (ITO). The heater deposition utilizes an ultrasonic lift-off method, also detailed. The complete manufacturing process steps of both the capture dots and the TTFHs are described. Both devices are successfully demonstrated and their electrical properties are discussed. en_US
