Quality factor of the resonance for reasonable range of values (color online). For the environment viscosity and the rotational spring constant of elastic environment (in terms of kBT). We assume the design includes a magnetite nanoparticle of radius 100 nm. Note that resonance is possible in the region above Q = 0.5line. It is shown how resonance of a given quality can be achieved in lower frequency by reducing the viscosity experienced by the resonator.
