Paper Abstract

The self-oscillation phenomenon of silicon cantilever microresonators (SCMR) produced by the positive optical power feedback generated by the Fabry-Perot cavity formed between the end of an optical fiber and the surface of the SCMR has been observed. A detailed theoretical analysis has been presented to explain this very useful phenomenon for the development and applications of practical SCMR sensor structures. According to the experimental results obtained, a compact probe based on the self-oscillation phenomenon has been designed and demonstrated.
