Design of a simple doubly clamped cantilever structure capable of localizing mechanical and optical energy at the nanoscale is presented. The optical design is based upon photonic crystal concepts in which simple nanoscale patterning of a sub-micron cross-section cantilever can result in strong optical localization to an effective optical mode volume of 4 cubic wavelengths in the material (4(λ=n)<sup>3</sup>). By placing two identical cantilevers within the near field of each other, strong… CONTINUE READING
