Example Wet Etching Table

How to use the wet etch table:

When entering a new etch into the table make a row for every etchant used in the solution such that the information can be sorted by etchant. For example, the InP etch HCl:H3PO4(1:3) and H3PO4:HCl(3:1). Likewise, if etch is known to be selective to multiple materials the etch should have a row for each material. For example HCl:H3PO4(1:3) is selective to both InGaAs and InGaAsP.

This multiple entry method may seem laborious for the person entering a new etch, however the power of sorting by selective materials and chemicals in a table with all materials is great.
