Abstract

We present, for the first time to our knowledge, an optomechanical integration method for finite functions. This technique allows for the integration of any finite function by combining optical and mechanical principals. The integrated function can then be determined using curve fitting methods. Furthermore, the original function can be reproduced through numerical or analytical integration.
