Paper Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a millimeter scale two degree of freedom planar actuation mechanism (XY stage) with flexure hinges that can generate micrometer scale motion at high frequencies. To amplify the micro scale motion in X and Y directions, two identical levers are used. According to the analytical and computational results, a prototype is developed for validation. Piezoelectric actuators are used in the system because of their compactness and large force capacity. The levers in the XY stage are topologically optimized so that the first resonance frequency of the system is maximized, which enlarges the operation range of the system.
