Statistical performance evaluation of electrostatic micro actuators for a deformable mirror


This paper describes a study to characterize the performance of surface micromachined electrostatic actuators, with a brief introduction to some MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) mirrors developed at BU incorporating these actuators. Fixed-fixed actuators were extensively tested to determine suitability for optical applications, and specffically for an… (More)
