Solid-gap resonators based on PVDF-TrFE
High frequency wine-glass mode bulk MEMS resonators actuated by means of capacitive transduction have been fabricated by using solid-gaps based on polyvinylidenefluoride-trifluoroethylene (PVDF-TrFE). The fabrication process flow of patterned PVDF-TrFE gaps applied in RF MEMS is presented for the first time. Measurements of the polarization of the material and the frequency and voltage dependence of the capacitance in the actuation gaps of the resonators are provided.
