Abstract: We present the numerical and experimental investigations of micromechanical resonators made by creating alternate defects with different central-hole radii (r′) in a two-dimensional (2-D) phononic crystal (PnC) slab. The PnC structures were fabricated by etching a square array of cylindrical air holes in a 10 m thick free-standing silicon plate using a CMOS-compatible process. Preliminary experimental results show that the performance of the PnC resonators in terms of resonant frequency, Q factor, and insertion loss (IL) is highly dependent on r′. A Q factor of more than 3000 is achieved for the case of r′ 6 m while all the designed resonators with alternate defects have higher Q factor and lower IL than the resonators based on the normal Fabry-Perot structure due to the reduction in the mode mismatch. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
