Design, implementation, and application of a microresonator platform for measuring energy dissipation by internal friction in nanowires.


Accurate measurements of internal friction in nanowires are required for the rational design of high-Q resonators used in nanoelectromechanical systems and for fundamental studies of nanomechanical behavior. However, measuring internal friction is challenging because of the difficulties associated with identifying the contributions of material dissipation… (More)
