A Micro Strain Gauge with Mechanical Amplifier

Abstract

A passive micro strain gauge with a mechanical amplifier has been designed, analyzed, and tested. The mechanical amplifier provides a high gain such that residual strain in thin films can be directly measured under an optical microscope. This strain gauge can be in situ fabricated with active micro sensors or actuators for monitoring residual strain effects… (More)
