Author Affiliations +
MEMs are basically sensors and actuators in a harsh environment or strains exceeding 102 and strain rates approaching shock deformation conditions. The reliability concerns are electronic, optical and micro-mechanical. Surface morphology of sensors and actuators becomes critical and the investigation presents results on diamond like films developed for resolving tribology related problems in MEMs rotating surfaces. Other MEMs results on surface passivation are reviewed.
