Abstract

Interferometric imaging of normal mode dynamics in electromechanical resonators, oscillating in the rf regime, is demonstrated by synchronous imaging with a pulsed nanosecond laser. Profiles of mechanical modes in suspended thin film structures and their equilibrium profiles are measured through all-optical Fabry-Perot reflectance fits to the temporal traces. As a proof of principle, the mode patterns of a microdrum silicon resonator are visualized, and the extracted vibration modes and equilibrium profile show good agreement with numerical estimations.
