Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present proof-of-concept results in the development of inertially sensitive optomechanical lasers. These devices consist of Vertical-External-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers that are combined with monolithic fused silica mechanical resonators. External accelerations are directly transcribed onto corresponding changes in the laser frequency, thus providing direct frequency-based inertial measurements.
