Optomechanical coupling between GHz frequency mechanical modes and λ ~ 1.5 µm optical modes in single–crystal diamond microdisks is demonstrated. The mechanical modes have a Q frequency product of 2 × 1013 Hz in ambient conditions, and are excited into ~ 31 pm self-oscillations by radiation pressure.
