Effects of pre-strain on graphene resonator in either harmonic or nonlinear oscillation. (a) Frequency shifts of a graphene resonator, operating in either harmonic oscillation or nonlinear vibration, due to atomic adsorption with mass of Δm = 20 ag as a function of in-plane tension. (b) Frequency shifts of graphene resonators, which undergo harmonic oscillations, due to atomic adsorption (with mass of Δm = 20 ag) as a function of the size of graphene resonator and in-plane tension. (c) Frequency shifts of graphene resonators, operating in nonlinear vibrations, due to atomic adsorption (with mass of Δm = 20 ag) with respect to the size of graphene and in-plane tension.
