Abstract

Inorganic materials (such as glass 10, ceramic 12, and metal 14 in Fig. 1) are typically used in the fabrication of multi-layer structures for flat panel displays. Each material has different thermal expansion characteristics. During the bake-out process, there is a risk of glass breakage and leaks.
