Abstract

Piezoelectric tube actuators with cantilevered optical fibers have enabled the miniaturization of scanning image acquisition techniques for endoscopic implementation. To achieve raster scanning for such a miniaturized system, the first resonant frequency should be of the order of 10 s of Hz. We explore adding a mass at an intermediate location along the length of the fiber to alter the resonant frequencies of the system. We provide a mathematical model to predict resonant frequencies for a cantilevered beam with an intermediate mass. The theoretical and measured data match well for various fiber lengths, mass sizes, and mass attachment locations along the fiber.
