A novel actuator of small angle control is researched and designed in this paper, which can be used in micro optical electro-mechanical system (MOEMS) gyroscope. This actuator is composed of three pieces of piezoelectric ceramics (PZT), foundation base and gear frame. According to converse piezoelectric effect, dilations of the PZT change when applied voltages are different which leads actuator to have a deflection angle. Connected with control circuit, actuator has the ability to exactly adjust angle which has arc-second level. It can accomplish the adjustment of spatial resonator with high efficiency. Structure model of the actuator was set up, and simulation was completed in this paper. Also the performance of actuator was validated by experiment.
