In this experiment we fabricated a microelectrodes array which is suitable for use in studying the AC electrokinetic phenomena of electrorotation and dielectrophoresis. We performed the fabrication using a glass substrate from a gold/chrome film. A seed layer of thin chrome (5nm) is used to promote adhesion of thicker inert gold film (70 nm) to the substrate. The fabrication is performed in a clean-room. In this report we will present the method used, the result of fabrication of electrodes, and also discuss the positive and negative result. Finally we will discuss why the results happened the way they did and how to overcome the negative results.
