Paper Abstract

A workstation for the testing and modification of IMEMS, incorporating a laser vibrometer, surface profiler and a laser for ablation, is described. Initial results have demonstrated the ability to do dynamic and static testing rapidly at the wafer level. Electrostatic actuation is shown to be one feasible method of driving the devices on a wafer; the other methods are being explored.
