As shown in Figure 9, the Q of a lateral free-free beam resonator is 10,743 at 10.
To maximize the Q of the resonator, free-free (FF) beam resonators (6) are required, since the anchor dissipation of this type of resonator is optimized using quarter wavelength suspension beams.
Simple cantilever and fixed beam resonator structures that use electrostatic actuation were fabricated on 200 mm wafers in standard production tools, using materials and processes routinely employed for on-chip interconnect in a typical CMOS line.
Force transducers, or sensors, are recently being designed and constructed as MEMS devices which use polysilicon beam resonator as sensors in order to relate the force that is being measured to the frequency of vibration of the resonator.
The editors have organized the sixteen contributions that make up the main body of the text in three parts devoted to techniques for the fabrication of nanocantilever beams, nonlinearity of nanocantilever beam resonators, and applications for nanocantilever beams.
