Schematic of the piezo-electromechanical device. A superconducting resonator (in yellow) is fabricated in a niobium titanium nitride film on a sapphire substrate. The resonator is flipped and suspended on top of an acoustic resonator, which consists of a thin aluminum nitride layer (green) deposited on a thick silicon substrate.
