Optimizing Frequencies and Shapes in MEMS Gyroscopes

This paper applies shape optimization techniques to automatically design novel geometries for MEMS gyroscopes. By parametrizing spring shapes and implementing eigenfrequency gradients, an algorithm tailors the frequency split between drive and detection modes. It also shifts other modes away from key frequencies, while satisfying manufacturability constraints. This explores unintuitive shapes beyond human design capabilities.
