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


We numerically present optically enabled micro-disk inertia sensor. It consists of a disk-shaped proof mass integrated on top of an optical waveguide. It exhibits a sensitivity of 12dB/μm displacement and a dynamic range of 1g-10g.
