Photonics West 2017: Fraunhofer IPMS presents novel MEMS bending actuators

Press Release / 17.1.2017

A new class of electrostatic micro actuators developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) enables large vertical or lateral deflections with little energy consumption and low electrical drive voltage. This technology can be used to extend existing microsystem solutions as well as develop new application areas with novel designs. At Photonics West 2017, Fraunhofer IPMS will present the new class of electrostatic bending actuators for the first time at a trade fair.
