Author Affiliations +
The development of quartz crystal instrumentation for space research resulted from investigations on the use of AT-cut and Y-cut quartz crystal oscillators to detect very small changes in mass and temperature. These novel methods of using the different cuts of quartz to make mass and temperature measurements led to the design and construction of seven new instruments that are used to study the space environment.
