Optical Probing and Actuation of Microwave Frequency Phononic Crystal Resonators without Clamping Losses

We demonstrate microwave frequency mechanical modes of optomechanical crystals having arbitrarily small clamping losses. The optomechanical crystals are connected to the substrate via a phononic bandgap structure, simultaneously isolating and rigidly supporting the optomechanical resonator.
