Abstract

The proof-of-concept demonstration of a microfiber-based flexural disc accelerometer is presented. The reduced microfiber size and bending radii give rise to high device compactness and responsivity. A flexural disc accelerometer manufactured from a 10mm long microfiber showed a performance of 2.2rad/g, with the responsivity expected to increase proportionally with the microfiber length.
