Paper Abstract

A three-axis micro probe with wiring of the piezoresistors to Wheatstone bridges on the silicon membrane was currently developed for application in high precision coordinate measuring machines (CMM). The methods and results of the experimental investigation of the main properties of the 3d micro probe are presented. The influence of temperature and light onto the probe performance is described. Finally a brief outlook on the optimization of the threshold sensitivity is given.
