Nano-mechanical sensors “wired” using photonics

Yale researchers have demonstrated silicon-based nano-cantilevers, smaller than the wavelength of light, that operate on photonic principles eliminating the need for electric transducers and expensive laser setups. The work, reported in Nature Nanotechnology, should usher in a new generation of tools for ultra-sensitive measurements at the atomic level. In nanoelectromechanical systems, cantilevers are the most […]
