Paper Abstract

Optical excitation and detection of a quartz crystal resonator have been realized experimentally. Optical fibers have been used to excite the crystal through the thermoelastic effect. The resonator vibration was detected through another piece of optical fiber. The results provided a foundation for future remote optical excitation of resonant sensors for sensing application in extreme environments.
