I kind of want to piggy back off of Trevor in this, but on a different point. For the MEMS ring, please explain how a rotation causes the nodes and anti-nodes to shift position by 45 degrees (why 45 degrees? and is it ALWAYS 45 degrees?). I have a pretty solid understanding of dynamics, but that one is perplexing me... My understanding tells me that the disk would behave a little differently than what you're describing, but I could simply be missing something or not understanding, hence my request for a more detailed explanation.
