Paper Abstract

This paper describes the application of the well-known scanning laser interferometric technique to the vibration measurement of small objects. The technique has been optimized to measure small biological specimens, in which sizes can range from 100 micrometers to 10 mm, but proves to be also suitable for vibrational studies on micromechanical systems. In the field of sensory physiology, it is here applied to the investigation of the biomechanical properties of small tympanal systems. Some results are briefly presented.
