An interesting arXiv paper: "Precession optomechanics"
Just thought that the following paper archived at the arXiv yesterday could be of general interest to any mechanician:
Xingyu Zhang, Matthew Tomes, Tal Carmon (2011) "Precession optomechanics," arXiv:1104.4839 [^]
The fig. 1 in it makes the matter conceptually so simple that the paper can be recommended to any mechanician for his general reading, and not only to a specialist in the field.
