Boundary structure and geometry parameters of the Double-Ended-Tuning Fork (DETF) resonator in a micro-accelerometer are investigated. The theoretical vibration model of a DETF resonator is established and verified by the simulation results obtained by finite element method. Uncertainty analysis incorporating the parametric uncertainty distribution is conducted by establishing the sample-based stochastic model to systematically investigate the influence of different geometry parameters of the DETF resonator on the natural frequency and the sensitivity of DETF resonator. The results reveal the different influences of geometry parameters, which can be used as reference for design and optimization of the DETF resonator of the micro-accelerometer.
