This paper describes a new mechanical implementation of a folded pendulum based inertial sensor, configurable as seismometer and as accelerometer.1 The sensor is compact, light, scalable, tunable (< 100mHz), with large band (10−6 Hz÷10Hz), high quality factor (Q < 1500 in air) instrument and good immunity to environmental noises, guaranteed by an integrated laser optical readout. The measured sensitivity curve is in very good agreement with the theoretical one (10−12 m/ √ Hz in the band (0.1…

Compact tunable monolithic sensors for vibration monitoring and control of structures and very low frequency – large band characterization of sites

In this paper we describe a new mechanical implementation of a horizontal monolithic folded pendulum inertial sensor, configurable as low-frequency large-band seismometer and/or accelerometer, for

Ambient Noise Levels in the Continental United States

We present a new approach to characterize the background seismic noise across the continental United States. Using this approach, power spectral den- sity (PSD) is estimated at broadband seismic
