Abstract

Electro-rheological gel (ERG) is a functional material whose friction characteristic varies according to the intensity of an applied electric field. In this study, ERG is applied to the fixture element for a silicon wafer. Silicon wafers are used for semiconductor manufacturing, a process carried out in a vacuum. The purpose of this study is to clarify the basic characteristic of ERG in a vacuum. To investigate these characteristics, several tests were carried out using silicon wafers. In addition, the optimal shape of one-sided electrodes applying the electric field effectively was designed by means of a static electric field analysis.
