Paper Abstract

The paper describes a tilt meter sensor for geophysical applications, based on Folded Pendulum (FP) mechanical sensor. Both the theoretical model and the experimental results of a tunable mechanical monolithic FP tilt meter prototype are presented and discussed. Some of the most important characteristics, like the measured resolution of ≈ 0.1 nrad at 100mHz, are detailed. Among the scientific results, earth tilt tides have been already observed with this monolithic FP tilt meter prototype.
