|Title:||A high-bandwidth electromagnetic MEMS motion stage for scanning applications|
|Published:||August 23, 2012|
|Abstract:||This paper presents the design, fabrication and experimental results of an out-of-plane electromagnetic motion stage. The combination of electromagnetic actuation and a flexure-supported platform enables bidirectional motion with high precision as well as linear characteristics. A planar microcoil and a permanent magnet generate Lorentz force, which drives the flexure-supported platform directly. The copper microcoil is electroplated on a silicon substrate and the platform is fabricated through silicon bulk micromachining of silicon-on-insulator wafers. The resonance frequency of the fabricated micro stage is 2.0 kHz which can give an open-loop control bandwidth larger than 500 Hz. Experimental results verify highly linear bidirectional motion without any hysteresis or nonlinearity. Also, excellent high-frequency open-loop tracking control performance is demonstrated.|
