Hemispherical Resonator Gyroscope [BPN603]
The goal of this project is to realize a micro rate-integrating gyroscope that produces an output
signal proportional to rotation angle rather than rotation rate. If successful, this device would
eliminate the need of integrating the gyroscope's rate output to obtain the angle. Realizing a micro
rate-integrating gyroscope can be achieved by fabricating hemispherical resonating shells with
extremely close frequency matching (delta f < 10 Hz) and a very high quality factor (Q > 1 million).
Structures must be highly axisymmetric and micro-finished to nanometer scale roughness.
