dc.description.abstractExperiments show that air breakdown and substrate carrier conduction can be responsible of the dielectric charging of microelectromechanical devices after electrical stress. Test conducted under vacuum allows us to isolate the two mechanisms. It is also shown that the relative importance of the two mechanisms depends on the dielectric nature and technology.
