An approach using Raman spectrum method is reported to measure pull-in voltages of graphene capacitive shunt switches. When the bias excesses the pull-in voltage, the Raman spectrum's intensity largely decreases. Two factors that contribute to the intensity reduction are investigated. Moreover, by monitoring the frequency shift of G peak and 2D band, we are able to detect the pull-in voltage and measure the strain change in graphene beams during switching.
