Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we are reporting a new way to do marking on IC package. In the way, white ink is wrapped in microcapsules that are coated on a transparent tape. Laser is irradiated on the tape surface, break the microcapsules and release the ink on to the IC package surface. After an UV light treatment, the ink will stick on the IC surface, forming a high contrast marking. It is found that the quality of the marking depends on tape configuration, tape-IC distance, laser peak power, scan speed of laser irradiation and other laser parameters.
