Micro- and nanoelectromechanical (MEM/NEM) resonators are used in numerous fields of engineering and are crucial for time keeping, synchronization, and sensing applications. These systems are subjected to energy dissipation, which is a limiting factor in the performance. Extensive understanding is essential when nonlinearities show up in both...

The high susceptibility of ultrathin two-dimensional (2D) material resonators to force and temperature makes them ideal systems for sensing applications and exploring thermomechanical coupling. Although the dynamics of these systems at high stress has been thoroughly investigated, their behavior near the buckling transition has received less...

Nanoscale forces from natural phenomena are hard to measure. It is not insofar that we lack the ability to measure such small forces. On the contrary, nanotechnology offers a wide spectrum of techniques that allow us to sense at this scale. However, many natural systems are subject to a noisy environment or need to be surrounded by liquid to...

The temperature dependent order parameter provides important information on the nature of magnetism. Using traditional methods to study this parameter in two-dimensional (2D) magnets remains difficult, however, particularly for insulating antiferromagnetic (AF) compounds. We show that its temperature dependence in AF MPS3 (M(II) = Fe, Co, Ni)...

Magnetostrictive coupling has recently attracted interest as a sensitive method for studying magnetism in two-dimensional (2D) materials by mechanical means. However, its application in high-frequency magnetic actuators and transducers requires rapid modulation of the magnetic order, which is difficult to achieve with external magnets,...

Atomic layer deposition (ALD), a layer-by-layer controlled method to synthesize ultrathin materials, provides various merits over other techniques such as precise thickness control, large area scalability and excellent conformality. Here we demonstrate the possibility of using ALD growth on top of suspended 2D materials to fabricate...

Semiconducting van der Waals magnets exhibit a rich physical phenomenology with different collective excitations, as magnons or excitons, that can be coupled, thereby offering new opportunities for optoelectronic, spintronic, and magnonic devices. In contrast with the well-studied van der Waals magnets CrI<sub>3</sub> or Fe<sub>3</sub>GeTe...

Nanomechanical spectroscopy (NMS) is a recently developed approach to determine optical absorption spectra of nanoscale materials via mechanical measurements. It is based on measuring changes in the resonance frequency of a membrane resonator vs. the photon energy of incoming light. This method is a direct measurement of absorption, which has...

Most physical phenomena be it mechanical, chemical or biological are inherently nonlinear in nature. In fact, it is the linear phenomenon that is the exception rather than the rule. By harnessing these nonlinearities one can obtain far greater information about the underlying physics and develop more sensitive and efficient devices. This is...

Although 2D materials hold great potential for next-generation pressure sensors, recent studies revealed that gases permeate along the membrane-surface interface, necessitating additional sealing procedures. In this work, we demonstrate the use of free-standing complex oxides as self-sealing membranes that allow the reference cavity beneath...

Nanomechanical resonators with low dissipation rates are ideal tools in fundamental science applications. They have been used in the field of cavity optomechanics for example in ground-state cooling, and in sensing applications, such as atomic resolution mass sensors. Their great sensitivity is due to their high Q-factor, which is a metric that...

The goal of the research described in this thesis was to investigate the basis of dissipation dilution as well as make it comprehensible. In the written literature we could find that the kinetic energy of an oscillating beam is stored into two types of potential energy~\cite{Kippenberg, Kotthaus}. A dissipative bending component and a...
