1. Overwhelming thermomechanical motion with microwave radiation pressure shot noise
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 8/21/2015
Authors: John D Teufel, Florent Quentin Lecocq, Raymond Wiley Simmonds
Abstract: We measure the fundamental noise processes associated with a continuous linear position measurement of a micromechanical membrane incorporated in a microwave cavity optomechanical circuit. We observe the trade-o ff between the two fundamental sou ...

2. Modular apparatus for electrostatic actuation of common atomic force microscope cantilevers
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Christian J Long, Rachel J. Cannara
Abstract: Piezoelectric actuation of atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilevers often suffers from spurious mechanical resonances in the loop between the signal driving the cantilever and the actual tip motion. These spurious resonances can reduce the accuracy ...

3. Small footprint nano-mechanical plasmonic phase modulators
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 6/21/2015
Authors: Vladimir A Aksyuk, Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg
Abstract: The authors‰ recent Nature Photonics article titled ,Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase ModulatorsŠ [1] is reviewed which reports a new phase modulation principle with experimental demonstration of a 23 μm long non-resonant modulator having ...

4. Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: The miniaturization of photonic devices is fundamentally limited by the index of refraction of the constituent materials if light is confined in dielectric nanostructures. By coupling electromagnetic fields to metal‰s free electrons plasmonic devices ...

6. Si3N4 optomechanical crystals in the resolved-sideband regime
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 1/27/2014
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Serkan Ates, Yuxiang Liu, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate sideband-resolved Si3N4 optomechanical crystals supporting 105 quality factor optical modes at 980 nm, coupled to approximately 4 GHz frequency mechanical modes with quality factors of approximately 3000. Optomechanical electromagneti ...

7. Large Stroke Electrostatic Comb Drive Actuators Enabled by a Novel Flexure Mechanism
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 4/30/2013
Authors: Mohammad Olfatnia, Siddharth Sood, Jason John Gorman, Shorya Awtar
Abstract: This paper reports in-plane electrostatic combdrive actuators with stroke as large as 245 μm that is achieved by employing a novel Clamped Paired Double Parallelogram (C-DPDP) flexure mechanism. The C-DP-DP flexure mechanism design offers high b ...

8. Large Stroke Electrostatic Comb-Drive Actuators Based on a Novel Flexure Mechanism
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 6/20/2012
Authors: Mohammad Olfatnia, Siddharth Sood, Jason John Gorman, Shorya Awtar
Abstract: This paper reports in-plane electrostatic comb-drive actuators with stroke as large as 245 µm, achieved by employing a novel Clamped Paired Double Parallelogram (C-DP-DP) flexure mechanism. For a given flexure beam length (L1), comb gap (G), and actu ...

10. O2 A-band line parameters to support atmospheric remote sensing. Part II: The rare isotopologues
Topic: Nanomechanics
Published: 7/21/2011
Authors: Joseph Terence Hodges, David A Long, Daniel K Havey, S. S. Yu, M Okumura, Charles E Miller
Abstract: Frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (FS-CRDS) was employed to measure over 100 transitions in the R-branch of the b1Σg+←X3Σg-(0,0) band for the rare O2 isotopologues. The use of 17O- and 18O-enriched mixtures allowed fo ...
