In this paper we discuss the problems connected with analysis of mechanical properties of silicon microelements being basic parts of MEMS (e.g. micromembranes, microbeams). The quality of these microproducts (the reliability and the lifetime) is strongly dependent on the material properties and the mechanical design. There is also strong influence of the technology process on their performance. The best suited methods for their testing are optical full-field measuring methods. They provide data (displacements, strains, distribution of material constants) which may be easily used in the hybrid experimental-numerical methods for microelements analysis and optimization of their design.
