Co-sputtering techniques are used to deposit amorphous Si/Ti (a-Si/Ti) composite materials at room temperature<br/>with a view to enabling post-CMOS fabrication of MEMS/NEMS. Electrical and mechanical properties<br/>of a-Si/Ti are characterised and analysed, benchmarking those of polycrystalline Si (poly-Si)<br/>commonly used for MEMS/NEMS. The surface micromachining feasibility of a-Si/Ti is preliminarily investigated<br/>using a commonly available Si dry etching process. The promising material and process development<br/>suggests that a-Si/Ti composites can potentially be exploited as MEMS/NEMS structural materials<br/>with desirable post-CMOS process compatibility, leading to monolithic integration of MEMS/NEMS and<br/>ICs
