    This paper reports a new method to fabricate in-plane oriented micro structures with use of an-isotropic wet chemical etching techniques. The method is very engaging due to the simplicity, low demands on cleanroom resources, the high accurate controllability and wafer-thickness independence. Integration in micro systems is facilitated by the unique possibility to obtain in-plane working devices. The functionality is demonstrated by performed analytical and numerical simulations as well as measurements of a duckbill valve.
