Abstract:

An experimental study was made of the effects of luminous rigidity and radiometric oscillatory instability. High sensitivity when measuring small forces or moments of forces in macroscopic experiments can be attained if the dissipative coupling between the probe body and the laboratory is appreciably reduced. When high-Q mechanical oscillators are built and placed in a vacuum, effects are induced that strongly affect the dynamic characteristics of these oscillators. The present report deals with two of these effects.
