Self-sensing graphene nanoelectromechanical systems

Alternative title:
Ultrasensitive room temperature piezoresistive transduction in graphene-based nanoelectromechanical systems
Abstract:

Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) can measure very small forces and mass as has been showcased in the last decade by the demonstration of measurements ranging from single spin detection and mass spectroscopy to the read-out of the quantum ground state of a mesoscopic resonator. Mass spectroscopy with NEMS is particularly appealing because the vibrational frequency of NEMS is a sensitive function of its total mass; thus minute changes in mass due to added or removed adsorbate will change...
