The paper describes the application of a monolithic folded pendulum (FP) as a tiltmeter for geophysical applications, developed at the University of Salerno. Both the theoretical model and the experimental results of a tunable mechanical monolithic FP tiltmeter prototype are presented and discussed. Some of the most important characteristics, like the possibility of tuning its resonance frequency to values as low as 70mHz and its measured resolution of â 0.1 nrad at 100mHz, are detailed. Among the scientific results, earth tilt tides have been already observed with a monolithic FP tiltmeter prototype. Â© 2010 Copyright SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering.
