Abstract: We investigate the electromechanical properties of a number of system geometries featuring a doubly clamped Carbon Nanotube or Graphene sheet with a deflection sensitive resistance and an electronic feedback in the form of a Lorentz force or an electrostatic attraction. The nanotube is subjected to a constant current- or voltage bias and it is shown that when the electro-mechanical coupling exceeds a certain critical value the system becomes unstable to self-excitations of the mechanical vibrati... more
