Abstract
A translatory MOEMS actuator with extraordinary large stroke - especially developed for fast optical path length modulation in miniaturized FTIR-spectrometers - is presented. A precise translational out-of-plane oscillation at 500 Hz with large stroke of up to 1.2 mm is realized by means of a new suspension design of the comparative large mirror plate with 19.6 mm² aperture using four pantographs. The MOEMS device is driven electro - statically resonant and is manufactured in a CMOS compatible SOI process. Up to ± 600 um amplitude (typically 1mm stroke) has been measured in vacuum of 30 Pa and 50 V driving voltage for an optimized pantograph design enabling reduced gas damping and higher driving efficiency.
