Abstract : An acceleration hardened resonator is made by a method including the steps of: (A) manufacturing and mounting the resonator; (B) performing acceleration tests to determine the acceleration sensitivity; (C) changing the interaction of the motional distribution with the stress field of the resonator in order to reduce the acceleration sensitivity; and (D) repeating steps (B) and (C) until a minimal acceleration sensitivity is obtained.
