This paper describes sound-excited vibrations of a silicon cantilever resonator for measuring its resonant frequencies. A strain gauge resistor integrated in the cantilever is used as a sensing element. The experimental setup greatly simplifies the measurement system and is sensitive and easy to operate compared with optical sensing methods. The measured resonant frequencies of the micro-cantilever resonator are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions from FE modeling.
