Paper Abstract

This paper deals with a 2D (x-y) actuator using multimode degeneration of bending vibrations - B21,B21' modes - and a radial vibration - (R,1) mode-excited in a piezoelectric ring vibrator. This actuator is aimed for not so large movement such as the one of a camera lens. The operating principle and the driving methods for movements of the actuator are presented. Degeneration conditions of the modes are considered by applying F.E.M., and the construction and characteristics of a prototype actuator are shown. It was found that the 2D (x- y) actuator can be made possible using the multimode ring vibrator proposed here.
