Generation of static and dynamic small calibration forces and their measurements by electromagnetic force compensation balance
AbstractThe paper presents some of the results of the static and dynamic force measurements at 100 nN to sub-10 µN ranges which are generated due the photon-momentum. The force sensor with resolution about 20 nN and operating in differential measurement mode is developed by two electromagnetic force compensation balances. In order to generate these calibration forces, CW lasers with different operational modes, power levels, and wavelengths are used. Multi-reflection configuration of the laser beam inside the macroscopic cavity with highly reflective mirrors are used to test and variate the total amount of the forces.
