Study of Langasite Crystal Micro-Resonators Using Length-Extension Mode: Temperature-Compensated Cuts and Applications to Atomic Force Microscopy
Quartz length-extension resonators have already been used to get atomically-resolved imaging by frequency-modulation atomic force microscopy. Other piezoelectric materials could be appropriate for this application. Theoretical study is reported on Langasite length extension resonator. In this paper, an attempt to fabricate similar micro resonators in Langasite temperaturecompensated cuts is prospected.
