Silicon microfabricated devices are being developed for reliable low cost sensors including accelerometers with tunnel junction readout. Using bonded silicon on insulator wafers as the starting material, novel structures are made by conventional surface micromachining followed by focused ion beam etching through 7 micrometers thick Si cantilevers at oblique angles to form submicron gaps to be closed by electrostatic actuation.
