We report measurements on hybrid gold/silicon suspended nanostructures operating as electromechanical resonators in the rf regime. The device consists of two nanoresonators operating as mechanical gating elements. We demonstrate this gating mechanism by tuning the mechanical modes of the device. Detailed numerical calculations are performed to model the device.

    We report on the design, fabrication, and characterization of superconducting coplanar waveguide resonators with nanoscopic constrictions. By reducing the size of the center line down to 50 nm, the radio frequency currents are concentrated and the magnetic field in its vicinity is increased. The...

    The sound absorption of a porous layer is affected by its thickness, especially in a low-frequency range. If a hard-backed porous layer contains periodical arrangements of rigid partitions that are coordinated parallel and perpendicular to the direction of incoming sound waves, the lower bound...
