Abstract
In a guided-wave optical microphone with a diaphragm used as a vibration plate, damping of diaphragm vibration is very significant in order to realize broad flat frequency response. In this study, a glass-based guided-wave optical microphone without a damping structure was experimentally examined to evaluate the damping ratio as the first phase in the optimization of damping. Damping ratio and resonance frequency were successfully evaluated to be 0.009 and 3.5 kHz, respectively, for a fabricated microphone with a diaphragm of 20 mm × 20 mm × 0.15 mm.
