FIG. 1.

Experimental MEMS switching schematic along with AFM images of the upper microcontacts and bottom contact pads after 2000 cycles with dc of 6 V and 1 mA. (Note that the upper contacts are inverted from the operating orientation to the orientation utilized for the AFM characterization).

FIG. 2.

Experimental MEMS switching schematic along with AFM images of the upper microcontacts and bottom contact pads after 3600 cycles with ac of ±6 V and 1 mA.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(a) AFM images of the gold surface after the noted number of contact cycles, along with a corresponding schematic of the AFM contact in (b). The graph in (c) presents the net material gained by the substrate (a negative volume represents a transfer of volume from the substrate to the tip).
