In this work, we present a method to simultaneously detect the mass and the position of an attached microparticle using a bridge-type micro-beam resonant mass sensor under axial pre-tension. Simultaneous detection of the mass and the position is innovatively enabled by deliberately varying the axial pre-tension, utilizing only the fundamental frequency. As an important dissipation mechanism, thermoelastic damping (TED) in micro-/nano-resonators imposes an upper limit on the quality factor and the minimum detectable mass of resonant mass sensors. Accordingly, TED of micro-/nano-beam resonant mass sensors with axial pre-tension is analyzed by the thermal energy method, and heat conduction along both the thickness direction and axial direction is considered. The effects exerted by the pre-tension on the sensitivity and TED of resonant mass sensors are systematically investigated. Numerical results reveal that axial pre-tension not only enhances the mass sensitivity but also reduces the TED of the resonant mass sensor. Furthermore, effects of other factors, such as aspect ratio, vibration mode, mass and position of the attached particle, on TED are examined as well. This work provides a theoretical guidance to the extraction of mass of microparticles, cells and molecules by experiment.

Hybrid systems consisting of a quantum emitter coupled to a mechanical oscillator are receiving increasing attention for fundamental science and potential applications in quantum technologies. In contrast to most of the presented works in this field, in which the oscillator eigenfrequencies are irreversibly determined by the fabrication process, we present here a simple approach to obtain frequency-tunable mechanical resonators based on suspended nanomembranes. The method relies on a micromachin...

Abstract An analytical model is proposed for thermoelastic damping in the out-of-plane vibration of a microring resonator with rectangular cross-section. Although thermoelastic damping in the in-plane vibration of a ring resonator has been intensively studied, there have been few works on thermoelastic damping of microring resonators in out-of-plane mode. The main difficulty of estimating thermoelastic damping could be the coupled motion of bending and torsion in out-of-plane mode. This paper co...

Abstract In this paper we analyse for the first time the bending vibration of a nanoplate with an attached mass using the strain gradient elasticity theory for homogeneous Lame material, under Kirchhoff-Love鈥檚 kinematical assumptions. The exact eigenvalues of the nanoplate vibrating with an attached mass are obtained for a general case, and an approximate closed form expression is provided if the intensity of the mass is small with respect to the total mass of the nanoplate. The inverse problem ...

Abstract This paper presents an analytical study on evaluation of thermoelastic damping (TED) in micromechanical resonators operating as mass sensors by means of the thermal energy approach. Both quasi-one-dimensional model and two-dimensional model are proposed and analytical expressions of TED in infinite series form for micro-beam resonator-based mass sensors are derived. We apply the proposed models to examine effects of various factors on TED, such as the position of attached mass particle,...

Shape memory alloy (SMA) films are very attractive materials for microactuators because of their high energy density. However, all currently developed SMA actuators utilize martensitic transformation activated by periodically generated heating and cooling; therefore, they have a slow actuation speed, just a few Hz, which restricts their use in most of the nanotechnology applications such as high frequency microcantilever based physical and chemical sensors, atomic force microscopes, or RF filter...

We present a theoretical analysis of the vibration of a suspended circular diaphragm resonator with a particle at an arbitrary location when considering the effects of plate stiffness and membrane tension in the diaphragm. The analytical expression relating position and mass of a particle attached on a stretched diaphragm with varying residual stress to the resulting shifts in diaphragm resonant frequency is derived. It has been shown that the particle position and mass for the diaphragm configu...

Vibrating micro- and nanomechanical mass sensors are capable of quantitatively determining attached mass from only the first three (two) measured cantilever (suspended) resonant frequencies. However, in aqueous solutions that are relevant to most biological systems, the mass determination is challenging because the quality factor (Q-factor) due to fluid damping decreases and, as a result, usually just the fundamental resonant frequencies can be correctly identified. Moreover, for higher modes th...
