31.1 Introduction

In many engineering applications, resonance is undesired and avoided. In large-scale civil and mechanical engineering applications, the amplified displacements at resonance often cause excessive noise, accelerated aging, and even destruction of a device. Micromachined resonators, on the other hand, can undergo sustained resonance for extended duration that often exceeds their designed lifetime. This operation ...
