Title: Magnetoelastically actuated MEMS device and methods for its manufacture

Abstract

A magnetoelastically actuated device includes a microscale cantilever arm supported at a standoff distance from a substrate. The cantilever arm is formed as a laminar magnetic actuator configured to bend when it is subjected to a magnetic field. The cantilever arm includes a film of magnetostrictive material. Also provided is a method for fabricating the magnetoelastically actuated device. The method includes defining an actuator mold in a layer of photoresist on a structural layer of the cantilever arm and electrodepositing a layer of a magnetostrictive alloy containing cobalt and iron onto the structural layer within the actuator mold.
