Abstract
The paper analyzes the prospects for the creation of a fundamentally new class of MEMS, which are based on the use of the photovoltaic effects of Dember, Kikoin – Noskov, photopiezoelectric effect in semiconductors for measuring various physical quantities. Different variants of designs of sensors, which are allowing their technical implementation without making fundamental changes in the existing technology have been reviewed. It is shown that the sensors based on photovoltaic effects are high-tech products, which is provided including extreme simplicity of the construction and technological route of their manufacture. An experiment proves the consistency was conducted photopiezoelectric effect and its use in sensor design based on it. The main problems that will require considerable effort on the part of developers and constructors of these products are likely to be associated with the processing of the output signal and increasing the sensitivity of the sensor to the measured physical quantities.
