Energy loss mechanism for suspended micro- and nanoresonators due to the Casimir force

Preprint English OPEN
Gusso, André;

A so far not considered energy loss mechanism in suspended micro- and nanoresonators due to noncontact acoustical energy loss is investigated theoretically. The mechanism consists on the conversion of the mechanical energy from the vibratory motion of the resonator into... View more
