Symmetry and Symmetry Breaking in Electrostatically Actuated MEMS

Authors: J.A. Pelesko, D.H. Bernstein and J. McCuan

Affilation: University of Delaware, United States

Pages: 432 - 435

Keywords: electrostatic actuation, mathematical model, symmetry breaking

We investigate the symmetry of solutions to the small aspect ratio approximate model of electrostatic actuation. We find that for an annular shaped domain asymmetric solutions may occur.
