Micro-surfaces

Hello, I am doing investigation into the scatter of ultrasound at high frequencies. I need to be able to create "known" regular surfaces on a small scale, for example a micro-pyramidal surface with each pyramid having a base 1 micron by 1 micron. Or maybe a sinusoidal surface - anything so long as it is regular and has features of the order 1-10 microns. I am totally drawing a blank on any companies which might be able to create such surfaces and wondered if any of you could help.

Thanks a lot

Amy Quinn

You should try to make phase hologramms (with mudulation on the surface) - this should fulfill your requirements.

I did reply to Amy Quinn's query to her e-mail. sorry about that because on that day i couldn't access internet. i suggested 3 or 4 alternatives, like making a microhardness indentation, using a densely sintered metallic material which will have a few pores etc. i am waiting for her reaction.

Re: Micro-surfaces
Amy,

Making shapes and structures in the size of microns is
part of the field of micro-electro-mechanical systesm (MEMS).
In order to find an organization that can help you making
the desired features you may want to send an e-mail to the MEMS
Newsgroup at MEMS@ISI.EDU
