In Reply to: amount of flex in quartz tuning fork resonators posted by Ray Bowen on 04/06/00 at 7:42 AM:
: 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,
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.
