Here we will discuss our novel anisotropic wet-etching method that allows scalable fabrication of TMD metamaterials with atomic precision, combined with traditional nanolithography techniques. We show that TMDs can be etched along certain crystallographic axes, such that the obtained edges are atomically sharp and exclusively zigzag-terminated. This allows us to fabricate interesting hexagonal nanostructures of predefined order and complexity, including a few nanometer thin nanoribbons and nanojunctions.
We describe the fabrication of high-stress Si_3N_4 nanobeam resonators with high aspect ratios exceeding lengths of 3.5mm. The lowest order out-of-plane modes of these nanobeams have quality factors of Q\geq 10^6 with fundamental mode frequencies lying in the range of 80-500kHz. The beams are fabricated from high-stress, 20-50nm-thick films of Si_3N_4 deposited via LPCVD on standard silicon wafers. The beams are patterned via electron beam lithography and deep reactive ion etching. The underlying silicon is ...
