The Resonator is a smidge over an inch and a half in diameter.
Here, we calculate the frequency of the graphyne sheet to assess its feasibility for being used as a nanomechanical resonator. An atomic-scale finite element modeling method using commercially available ANSYS FE code was adopted in the frequency analysis.
Since the dual-mode resonator is composed of symmetric structures, even-odd mode theory can be adopted to analyze its equivalent circuit structure and its equivalent circuit is given in Figure 3.
To independently control the phase and amplitude of the transmitted terahertz wave, we propose a novel resonator structure, a wire connected reticle-like resonator (WCRR) shown in Figure 1(a).
The designed tag consists L-shape resonators. The critical design parameters [L.sub.g], [W.sub.g], [L.sup.V.sub.i], [L.sup.H.sub.i], W, [[DELTA].sup.V], and [[DELTA].sup.H] are, respectively, the ground length and width, the length of ith resonator in the vertical and horizontal directions (i = 1, 2, ..., N), slot width, and vertical and horizontal spacings.
The last 2-3 years, a PANDA ring resonator system has been proposed as an optical sensing system which can be developed and applied to a variety of applications such as distributed sensors [8], molecular sensors [9], gas sensors [10], and force sensing device which is a new sensing device for a force sensing application [11].

It was the basis of a series of works of Sugimoto and coauthors [6,7], where the propagation of nonlinear acoustic waves was investigated in a tube connected with an array of Helmholtz resonators. A mathematical model was proposed, as well as a theoretical analysis and a comparison with experimental data.
In order to reduce noise Dresser-Rand installed a diffuser resonator array at the first and last stages of the compressor and a pipe resonator array on the inlet and discharge process piping.
For simplicity, a square shaped resonator is shown.
