4 Torsional actuation Interaction between magnetic moments and fields at the nanoscale: constant magnetic field: no force, only torque!

5 Torsional actuation UofA: J. Davis et al., APL (2010) Yale: A. C. Bleszynski-Jayich et al., Science (2009) Example systems: Nanomagnetic fluctuations Persistent current measurements

6 Torsional actuation Queensland: S. Forstner et al., PRL (2012) Optical readout

7 Torsional actuation Our proposal Sensitive readout of torque Monolithic integration

8 Photonic crystal nanobeam cavity 1D photonic crystal cavity See also: Harvard: M.W. McCutcheon and M. Lončar, Optics Express (2008) Caltech: J. Chan et al., Optics Express (2009) Caltech: M. Eichenfield et al., Optics Express (2009) Caltech: A. H. Safavi-Naeini et al., PRL (2012) Harvard: P. Deotare et al., APL (2009) HP Labs: P.E. Barlcay, Optics Express (2009) Small V o Small mass Overlaps mechanical and optical modes
