EECS X493.58

Vibration Control for Optomechanical Systems

The course will discuss ways in which vibration may affect
optical performance, as well as methods and means of
reducing this impact. Principal methods of vibration control,
such as damping and isolation will be discussed using
mathematical models and real life examples. Vibration
measurements and environmental standards will be
presented as applicable to optomechanical systems.
State-of-the art vibration control systems will be reviewed,
including pneumatic and elastomeric isolators, damping
treatments and active control systems.
