Abstract : An approximate theory will be discussed for the determination of acceleration sensitivity of a high overtone yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) bulk mode resonator plate operating directly at microwave frequencies. The high overtone bulk acoustic resonator facilitates implementation of low phase noise multiple frequency microwave sources with much less hardware than has been required by other means. Details of the oscillator design and tests are discussed in a companion paper. The vibration sensitivity is treated both analytically and experimentally in this paper.
