Micro- and nanoresonators have important applications including sensing, navigation, and biochemical detection. Their performance is quantified using the quality factor Q, which gives the ratio of the energy stored to the energy dissipated per cycle. Metallic glasses are a promising material class for micro- and nanoscale resonators since they are amorphous and can be fabricated precisely into complex shapes on these length scales. To understand the intrinsic dissipation mechanisms that…

Acoustic resonance in periodically sheared glass: damping due to plastic events.
Using molecular dynamics simulation, acoustic resonance in a low-temperature model glass is studied by applying a small periodic shear at a boundary wall to observe catastrophic plastic events after a very long time, which induce system-size elastic strains and cause a transition from resonant to off-resonant states.

Theory of harmonic dissipation in disordered solids
Mechanical spectroscopy, i.e. cyclic deformations at varying frequencies, is used theoretically and numerically to measure dissipation in model glasses. From a normal mode analysis, we show that in
Carbon nanotubes as ultrahigh quality factor mechanical resonators.
Sharp, gate-tunable resonances due to the bending mode of the nanotubes are observed, combining resonance frequencies of up to nu(0) = 350 MHz with quality factors above Q = 10(5), much higher than previously reported results on suspended carbon nanotube resonators.
Intrinsic energy loss mechanisms in a cantilevered carbon nanotube beam oscillator.
The study finds that the Q factor of the CNT beam oscillator varies with the temperature T following the 1/T(0.36) dependence and reveals that the weak interlayer binding strength and the interlayer commensurance significantly increases the energy dissipation in the double-walled CNT oscillator.

Particle rearrangement and softening contributions to the nonlinear mechanical response of glasses.
It is shown that the rearrangement-induced energy loss per strain can serve as an order parameter for the yielding transition, which sharpens for slow cooling rates and in large systems.
