Novel cantilever design with high control of the mechanical performance

A novel mechanical structure design with reduced deflection offset is reported. This design offers a batch processing solution to a well-known problem in the fabrication of very thin crystalline silicon structures, that is initial bending due to anchoring deformation. Mechanical characteristics have been studied and shown comparable to those of a standard cantilever. Finite Element Modeling (FEM) and experimental results show a decrease in initial bending, in dispersion of such bending, and in the dispersion of mechanical properties of the cantilevers, what improve features of arrays.
