... actuation in two directions have been demonstrated at the macroscale [( 7 )]. Many of the piezoelectric actuators that are relatively easy to fabricate at the macroscale are difficult or not currently possible at the microscale. Micromachining fabrication techniques can be used to bond multiple layers...
