Formation of Ni microstructure with high aspect ratio without thicker photoresist was tried by an electrcdeposition method. The Ni microprobes thicker than photoresist thickness were electrodeposited on a patterned substrate using thin photoresist patterned with UV radiation. It was important for preparing Ni microprobe with high aspect ratio to keep the overpotential of patterned cathode higher, and moreover the agitation using a paddle plating cell system was so effective to form uniform microprobes.
