Abstract

Cross-sectioning refers to the process of exposing the internal layers and printed devices below the surface by cleaving through the wafer. This article discusses in detail the steps involved in common cross-sectioning methods. These include sample preparation, scribing, indenting, and cleaving. The article also provides information on options for mounting, handling, and cleaning of samples during and after the cleaving process. The general procedures, tools required, and considerations that need to be taken into account to perform these techniques are considered.
