Paper Title:
A Piezoelectrically Actuated Scaning Micromirror Integrated with Angle Sensors
  Abstract

A novel piezoelectrically actuated scanning micromirror integrated with angle sensors is presented. The mirror with large size of 3×3mm2 locates in the center of the device, and piezoelectric actuators are symmetrically placed on both sides of the mirror. They are connected through torsion bars in which piezoelectric angle sensors are integrated. In order to obtain large deflection angle at a low operation voltage, the new actuator consisting of several parallel piezoelectric cantilevers is adopted. The machematical models of the mirror and piezoelectric actuator are given, and the piezoelectric angle sensors are designed to obtain high sensitivities. The simulation results indicate that the maximum mechanical deflection angle of the micromirror is 12.4° at an operation voltage of 25V, and the maximum output voltage of the angle sensor is 164.3mV. The resonant frequency associated with the torsional mode is 960Hz. The sensitivity of the angle sensor is 13.3mV/° without amplifying. The Scanning miromirror is suitable for optical scanning systems such as the microscope, the micro-spectrometer, the medical imaging, the barcode reader and so on.
