We developed an anisotropic wet etching simulator that can predict the etching profile of initial shape, which is two-dimensional and formed by straight lines. New etching rate database of quartz at a special condition was obtained. Improved hull method was used to deal with round corner etching. New programming flow was adopted to avoid improper profile prediction. A friendly graphical user interface was built for user's convenience. The simulation result of this simulator meets well with the experimental results and shows nice accuracy in new emerging faces predicting.
