Abstract
A number of methods for torque measurements in the macro domain exist, but only some of them can be scaled down to micro dimensions. This paper describes one method for measuring very small moments which is based on the measurement of torque by using silicon micro springs. Three different designs of torsion micro springs have been produced. The experimentally measured results show the possibility of torque measurement in the sub-(mu) Nm range.
