Abstract : Further studies on the acceleration sensitivity of quartz resonators have been performed. These studies have included conventional AT, strip AT, GT, IT, AK, and SC-cut resonators. No significant differences have been found in the best achievable acceleration sensitivities of the various cuts. The dependence of the acceleration sensitivity of 4-point mounted SC-cut resonators on design parameters and operating conditions has been investigated. These parameters include blank geometry, angle of cut, mounting orientation, temperature, drive current, and overtone. No significant systematic variation of acceleration sensitivity has been found as a function of any of these parameters except overtone for the same resonator.
