Surface micromachining is a set of fabrication processes derived from planar integrated-circuit fabrication technologies that have been adapted to make free-standing mechanical structures. Surface micromachined devices were made in the late 1960’s by Nathanson [31], and the foundations for the polysilicon surface-micromachining process were laid by Muller and Howe in 1982 [32]. Steps in the fabrication process include, but are not limited to:


Fatigue Dioxide Torque Epoxy Nitride
