This is the final report for my LIGO SURF program. In this document I will present some background about the Coating Ringdown Measurement Experiment (C.Ri.Me.) Laboratory's purpose and methodology, specifically as it pertains to the use of an electrostatic drive (ESD). I will then describe the working principles of the drive as well as my efforts to model and then improve upon the current design.
