Hogervorst, R.P. and Krijnen, B. and Brouwer, D.M. and Engelen, J.B.C. and Staufer, U. (2010) A single-mask thermal displacement sensor in MEMS. In: Tenth International Conference of the European Society for Precision Engineering & Nanotechnology, May 31 - June 4, 2010, Delft, the Netherlands.
|Abstract:||Position sensing in MEMS is often based on the principle of varying capacitance . Alternative position sensing principles include using integrated optical waveguides  or varying thermal conductance . Lantz et al demonstrated a thermal displacement sensor achieving nanometre resolution on a 100mm range. However a multi-mask production process and manual assembly were needed to fabricate this displacement sensor. In this work we present a 1-DOF thermal displacement sensor integrated with an actuated stage, and its experimental characterization. The system was fabricated in the device layer of a silicon-on-
insulator (SOI) wafer using a single-mask process.
