Paper Abstract

MicroElectroMechanical Systems made from single crystal silicon, and operated in torsion are used to rotate micro- mirrors for adaptive optics and for optical switching, to measure atomic forces, and to characterize the silicon at the micro/nm-scale. The design and characterization of torsion actuators for a mirror array and a scanning probe z-motion actuator will be discussed.
