Abstract

We fabricate high-stress silicon and silicon-nitride based nanomechanical string resonators to study quantum optomechanical interactions. We use phononic band-gap engineering techniques to minimize mechanical energy dissipation in the out-of-plane defect mode of the resonator. (C) 2020 The Author(s)
