The device is micromachined from a SOI substrate of 5?m thick Si device layer, with multilayers of Pt/Ti/PZT/Pt/Ti being deposited for use as electrodes. The PZT thin film is deposited by solgel technique and the microstructures are later released from the backside to form a 1x10 array of PZT cantilever arranged in parallel. A piezoelectric constant value of 116pmV-1 was estimated and an attenuation of 40dB was reached when a DC driving voltage of 1V was applied to the top electrodes of all the ten cantilevers while the bottom electrodes are grounded.||Source Title:||Procedia Engineering||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/68708||ISSN:||18777058||DOI:||10.1016/j.proeng.2010.09.184|
