Abstract: In this note, we consider the solutions to semiclassical analytic Schrödinger equations and prove a semiclassical version of the Cauchy estimate. As an application, we study the asymptotics for the Hausdorff measures of the nodal sets of the solutions on a compact analytic manifold as $ h\to 0$.
