Abstract

High order parametric resonances and mechanical studies in a nanowire mechanical system were realized using oscillating electric field induced oscillation. For the parametric resonance studies, resonance at drive frequencies near 2f0/n, where f0 is the nanowire's fundamental resonance, for n from 1 to 4 were observed inside a scanning electron microscope, and analyzed. Such resonances were found to originate from the amplitude dependent electric field force acting on the nanowire and can be described by the Mathieu equation, which has known regions of instability in the parameter space. For the mechanical studies of nanowires, resonances of nanowires were used to deduce their elastic modulus and quality factor.
