Coupled Electrostatic-Structures-Fluidic Analysis of a Micromirror

Authors: M. Turowski, E. Chan and P. Dionne

Affilation: CFD Research Corporation, United States

Pages: 274 - 277

Keywords: MEMS, optical switches, micromirrors, 3D simulations, fluid-structure interaction

For micromirrors used in optical MEMS, in addition to the static displacement-voltage characteristics, the accurate transient characterization of these devices is becoming increasingly important. The latter one is strongly affected by the viscous damping
