- n. A nanosized beam (structural unit, or stream of particles or radiation)
Sorry, no etymologies found.
(At bottom) This is a closer view of the device's nanobeam.
Similarly, while the zipper cavities worked by funneling the light into the gap between two nanobeams-allowing the researchers to detect the beams 'motion relative to one another-optomechanical crystals work on an even tinier scale, trapping both light and sound within a single nanobeam.
Second, let me point to a recent article, a collaborative effort between Weiqiang Ding, then a student in my group and now an assistant professor at Clarkson, Zaoyang Guo, then a postdoctoral fellow with Brian Moran at Northwestern, and now an assistant professor at the University of Glasgow, and myself, that addresses what we believe could be a weakness in terms of the analysis in the aforementioned work on nanobeam mechanics by the Lieber group.
