Isolating Mechanical Noise to Measure Casimir Force

Researchers at Boston University needed to isolate mechanical noise from a custom metrology platform, consisting of a MEMs accelerometer. This accelerometer had been re-purposed to perform a sensitive, room temperature measurement of the Casimir force. The Casimir force is a small, pN-scale force that arises between metallic surfaces at < 1 um separation due to … Continue reading
