Abstract We report on miniature GaAs disk optomechanical resonators vibrating in air in the radiofrequency range. The flexural modes of the disks are studied by scanning electron microscopy and optical interferometry, and correctly modeled with the elasticity theory for annular plates. The mechanical damping is systematically measured, and confronted with original analytical models for air damping. Formulas are derived that correctly reproduce both the mechanical modes and the damping behavior, and can serve as design tools for optomechanical applications in fluidic environment.
