We have introduce optomechanical nanoantennae, which showed dramatic changes in scattering properties by minuscule changes in geometry. These structures are very compact, with a volume 500 times smaller than free space optical wavelength volume. Through these optical elements, far-field can directly control the near-field of antenna by mechanical reconfiguration. Here we present the functionality of the optomechanical nanoantenna and challenges in fabricating and measuring these devices. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
