Variable capacitors using dual piezoelectric actuation bridges of in-plane polarized lead zirconatetitanate (PZT) films are demonstrated. The in-plane polarized PZT films make it possible to develop d33 mode bending devices which lead to about two times improvement in strain performance. And dual actuation mechanism is adopted to improve reliability of devices. The PZT thin film, deposited on Au structural layer using RF magnetron sputtering method, was poled and driven with inter digitated electrodes (IDE) to exploit d33 mode actuation. The fabricated capacitors show that the variable ranges are wide of more than 80% of its initial value under low driving voltages.
