: Hi:

: I'm looking for information on how much a quartz tuning fork resonator tine might flex. I'm interested in the normal resonant oscillation mode of operation, but non-resonant movement may also be useful information.

: I understand that standard quartz crystals change dimensions on the order of one nanometer while oscillating; are the tuning fork resonators "more flexible"?

: Thanks in advance,
: Ray

Hi, Ray.

Please take a look at:


where these resonators are discussed. I did notice one reference there to a noise floor movement of 0.2 pM.

Good luck.
