A self-alignment process of sub-mm chips is studied for hybrid integration toward silicon photonics applications. Capillary forces by liquid surface tension drive the tiny chips to precisely and quickly align on silicon wafers. Self-alignment behaviors and the resulting high accuracies of the sub-mm chips are discussed in this work.
