Two device geometries that enable structural coexistence are micro-mechanical and optical resonators. In one geometry, a micro-cantilever mechanical resonator also functions as a mirror in a high-finesse optical cavity. In a second, opto-mechanical coexistence takes the form of a micron-scale silica toroid that exhibits both high-Q radio-frequency mechanical resonances and optical resonances.
