FP mechanical model.
Eigenfrequencies and the first principal stress of the hinge as function of the hinge ellipticity, .
Simulation of elliptic hinges using COMSOL© simulation program.
Picture of the monolithic FP sensor. On the sensor right side there is the pendulum and the mirror for the optical readout system mounted on the central mass. On the sensor left side there is the inverted pendulum and a recess where it is possible to place the coil-magnet actuation system for the implementation of the FP control when the sensor is used as an accelerometer. The calibration masses are placed on the central mass. The homodyne Michelson interferometer is shown on the right.
Optical scheme of the implemented readout system.
Displacement of the monolithic FP central mass with a laser interferometric readout.
Transfer function measurement of the FP.
Measured natural resonance frequencies of the monolithic FP sensor prototype. The best measured frequency, , is circled.
