Room-temperature microjoining in air ambient has been achieved by using a cone-shaped Au microbump with ultrasonic application. In situ observation of ultrasonic bonding is performed using a high-speed camera to investigate the dynamics of the bonding process. "Softening" of the bump under ultrasonic application is observed. It is suggested that bonding is achieved within 50 ms.
