Abstract

An experimental study of the response of γ-ruticons to sinusoidal excitation was performed. The parameters investigated were mirror thickness, photoconductor/elastomer thickness ratio, and applied voltage. Overall frequency response and limiting behavior at high and low frequencies were determined. The frequency dependence of the deformation follows generally the theory of Kermisch, allowing mirror tension to be deduced from the high-frequency data. The shear modulus could not be obtained from low-frequency data because of the onset of viscous flow, which was not treated in the theory.
