Steps and grooves, which have typical directional characteristic, are two main functional structures of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems). This paper proposes a method for analysis and evaluation of MEMS steps and grooves based on finite radon transform (FRAT) and lifting wavelet. The method consists of three steps. Firstly, FRAT is adopted to detect the directional characteristic of a MEMS structure. Secondly, on the basis of the directional characteristic obtained, the profiles of the MEMS structure are analyzed by lifting wavelet. Finally, Histogram-fitting is employed for areal evaluation of a MEMS structure. Simulated and experimental results show that MEMS structures with directional characteristic can be extracted and evaluated by the method effectively.
