A novel viscoelastic model of four-wire suspension structure with damping gel in an optical pickup actuator was identified and validated. A two-stage method was developed for the identification of inertia, damping, and spring parameters in the dynamic model. The inertia and spring parameters were identified from static tests. With the identified parameters in the dynamic model, the damping parameters were identified through sinusoidal excitation tests. The accuracy of utilizing fractional derivative to model the damping of polymer damper was validated by carrying out error analysis. The fractional transfer function with voltage input was identified and compared with the transfer function of classical model.
