In this study, a temperature sensor was fabricated on silicon on insulator(SOI) substrate using semiconductor and Microelectromechanical systems(MEMS) process to improve the performance of temperature sensor. For the fabrication of the silicon membrane substrate, a wet etching method using a KOH solution was used. The sensitivity and response time of temperature sensor were significantly improved in the case of fabricating on a silicon membrane as compared to the case of being manufactured on a slide glass. The thermal response characteristics were analyzed by Fick's second law modeling. It was confirmed that the reaction speed was improved about 5 times and the sensitivity was improved about 4 times compared with the slide glass substrate.
