    An ideal amplifier has very low noise, operates over a broad frequency range, and has large dynamic range. Unfortunately, it is difficult to obtain all of these characteristics simultaneously. For example, modern transistor amplifiers offer multi-octave bandwidths and excellent dynamic range,...

    We observe parametric amplification in a torsional micron-scale mechanical resonator. An applied voltage is used to make a dynamic change to the torsional spring constant. Oscillating the spring constant at twice the resonant frequency results in a phase dependent amplification of the resonant...
