This paper presents the theoretical formulation of a lithographical bending control (LBC) method that uses lithographical degrees of freedom to control the bending of a multilayered beam. LBC is applied to a piezoelectric actuator that uses PZT as the piezoelectric material. The theoretical model is compared with measurements using a weakly fixed bridge structure suited for curvature measurement.
