    The long-term stability of single-crystal silicon microresonators is evaluated. The vacuum-encapsulated length-extensional mode resonators (fr∼13 MHz) are demonstrated to be capable of a ppm-level aging rate for a follow-up period of 42 days. Comparison with unsealed devices reveals that the silicon microresonators are sensitive to water contamination from the ambient humidity.
