Paper Abstract

An electrostatic-actuated suspended bridge structure composed by single-crystalline silicon carbide (SiC) is fabricated. The structure is entirely made of homoepitaxially grown single-crystalline 4H-SiC. Electrical isolation between the suspended bridge and the base plate is established with a pnp junction formed by multiple ion implantation. The structure is fabricated by a combination of reactive ion etching (RIE) and doping-selective photoelectrochemical (PEC) etching. The suspended bridge is actuated by applying a voltage between the bridge and the base plate.
