This paper investigates the feasibility of running a quartz force sensor with an optical drive. The general theory behind optical (strictly speaking, photothermal) driving of a resonant structure is presented and this is used in conjunction with empirical results obtained from an existing system to clarify problem areas and to suggest improvements. A straightforward method for optical reading is briefly described.
