Abstract

SUN, Bohua  and  HUANG, X.M. Henry. Mechanical nano-resonators at ultra-high frequency and their potential applications. S. Afr. j. sci. [online]. 2008, vol.104, n.5-6, pp. 169-171. ISSN 0038-2353.

Ultrafast nanomechanical resonators have attracted significant attention in research, and have promised a wide range of future applications. Choosing appropriate materials, optimizing fabrication processes, applying ultra-sensitive ultra-high-frequency readout techniques and adapting such devices to a variety of applications are all important subjects to address. This article reviews the current status of this field, and discusses future development directions.
