Mechanical characterization of electrostatic MEMS switches

Authors:F. Souchon, A. Koszewski, D. Levy, PL. Charvet
Pages:885 - 888
Keywords:MEMS, nanoindentation, stiffness, gap height, mechanical model
Abstract:The paper presents a methodology with nanoindentation experiments to characterize the mechanical properties of MEMS switches. After that, simple analytical models for mechanical and electrostatic aspects are used to validate these mechanical characterizations. At the end, the electrostatic behavior of switches are well-understood thanks to the mechanical charaterizations. the complete abstract is avalaible in a pdf file
