Abstract : An arrangement is disclosed for piezoelectric resonators utilizing linear and parallel sides or flats located on the periphery and opposite ends of the resonator. These sides are located normal to the axes wherein collinear forces applied to the resonator produce a desired effect upon its natural resonant frequency. For mechanical sensor applications this effect is maximized while for applications requiring a stable frequency or time base this effect is minimized. The outline peripheral shape of the resonators utilizing this mounting arrangement varies in accordance with the crystallographic orientation present in each resonator. (Author)
