MEMS Design and Application


Mixed-Level Model for Highly Perforated Torsional Actuators Coupling the Mechanical, the Electrostatic and the Fluidic Domain

, , , ,
Electrostatic attraction between neighboring electrodes is a widely used actuation principle employed in tiltable micromirrors or microrelays. Electrostatic actuation is especially favored for switching applications in mobile telecommunication because of its low power consumption. State-of-the-art [...]

Very Large Scale Integration of MOEMS Mirrors, MEMS Angular Amplifiers and High-voltage, High-density IC Electronics for Photonic Switching

, , , , , , , , , ,
The demand for communication bandwidth together with advances in MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology has spurred rapid development in the field of MOEMS (micro-optical-electrical mechanical systems). One exciting opportunity is in the area of photonic switching. [...]
