Paper Abstract

This paper describes a fabrication approach for producing high-sensitivity low-cost accelerometers. This approach offers the potential for intrinsically combining accelerometers as a dense array within an actuator. Hence sensing and actuation functions can be combined into one co-formed inexpensive transducer array. Results are presented which show that the combined transducer has predictable properties and is well suited for use in sensing, actuation, and active-control applications.
