We have fabricated suspended metal paddle resonators with carbon nanotubes functioning as self-detecting torsional springs. We observe gate-tunable resonances, that either tune to higher or to lower frequencies when increasing the dc voltage on the back-gate. We attribute the former modes to flexural vibrations of the paddle resonator, while the latter ones are identified as torsional vibrations. Compared to top-down silicon fabricated paddle resonators, nanotube springs have smaller torsionaldoi:10.1063/1.2985859 fatcat:576fkgygfvdczlquetw6acd7ve
