How long does a tuning fork ring?

tary mechanical excitations, or phonons, radiate from the mechanical resonator into the supports of the device", says Garrett Cole, Senior Researcher in the Aspelmeyer group at the University of Vienna. "This represents a significant breakthrough in the design of such devices."

The idea goes back to a previous work by Ignacio Wilson-Rae, physicist at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen. In collaboration with the Vienna group the team managed to come up with a numerical solution to compute this radiation in a simple manner that works on any standard PC. The predictive power of the numerical Q-solver removes the guesswork that is currently involved (e.g., trial and error prototype fabrication) in the design of resonant mechanical structures. The researchers point out that their "Q-solver" is scale independent and thus can be applied to a wide range of scenarios, from nanoscale devices all the way up to macroscopic systems.
