Subject: Relayed measurements of VMD 

CIT Modal lab is currently experimenting using a mirror relay to measure the VMD at a 45 degree angle to the mounting plate. The rational behind this is the desire to measure the approximate resonance frequency of both the first and second mode in one experiment. Future work will include validating this measurement with tuning of the VMD to make sure we are correctly identifying the modes.
