Experimental investigation on micro milling of single crystal silicon was performed on an ultra-precision micro machine using cBN and diamond coated tools. Raman spectroscopy studies of micro machined surfaces provided evidence of processing induced phase transformations and residual stress under a variety of machining conditions. Surface and subsurface characterisation studies show that ductile machining mode can be achieved at certain machining conditions. Silicon brain implants used in neurosurgery application were fabricated with good dimensional accuracy and surface finishes, which demonstrated that micro milling is a promising process for fabrication of micro silicon components.
