  • TCE [Thermal co-efficient of expansion] : The co-efficient of thermal expansion is defined as the fractional increase in the length per unit rise in temperature.

  • Usually, TCE is specified over a temperature range because it varies depending on the temperature.

  • The equation below describes a linear thermal expansion

    $\frac{ \triangle L}{L} = \alpha_L \triangle T$

    where, $\triangle L$ = change in length

    L = original length

    $\alpha_L$ = Linear co-efficient of thermal expansion

    $\triangle T$ = change in temperature.

Issues related to TCE :

  1. The TCE is often not the same in all axes. In MEMS structure the values are different X and Z plane.

  2. TCE , it is rarely linear and should be quoted either at a specific temperature or an average over a given temperature range.

  3. The variation in TCE with temperature is only a fairly smooth function if the material is undergoing no phase transitions.
