Hao, L; Gallop, J C; Chen, J* (2012) Near-field microwave excitation and detection of NEMS resonators. In: 2012 IEEE 12th International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO)., 20-23 August 2012, Birmingham, UK.

This paper describes a novel method which uses a near-field microwave probe system that is able to simultaneously excite and readout the oscillation of a range of mechanical resonators, from hundreds of microns to sub-micron size. We report the preparation of high Q dielectric microwave resonators coupled to a sharpened tungsten near-field tip and describe the microwave homodyne detection system used to drive and detect mechanical vibrations of a nearby electromechanical resonator. Experimental results are presented as well as some predictions of the system potential
