Paper Abstract

In the present paper an attempt has been made to immerse the micromechanical resonant structure in the gas medium and investigate the pressure and temperature sensitivities. By means of a closed loop between the exciting laser diode source,the mechanical resonator and the interrogating detector diode it is possible to design a self-oscillating system,which automatically provides the correct mechanical resonance frequency.This simple and economic data reduction system seems to operate quite efficiently.
