Abstract

Parametric amplification in nanomechanical structures is demonstrated by modulating a purely intrinsic mechanical parameter of the system—the stress—via piezoelectric electromechanical coupling. Large resonance amplitude and quality factor enhancement due to parametric pumping are observed under both vacuum and ambient pressure conditions. Exploration of the region of parametric instability yields results that agree with parametric amplification theory.
