In recent years, due to the maturity of micro-nano fabrication technology, artificial nano-structures are widely studied, people actively explore the mechanical, thermal, optical and electromagnetic properties in a variety of nano-materials, among which the nano-mechanical resonator draws great attention for its potential use to study the light-matter interactions. In this presentation, I will first report our experimental results of two carbon nanotube mechanical resonators that are strongly coupled when the frequencies of them are tuned very close to each other. The vibrations of the two resonators superpose to produce a frequency splitting phenomenon, indicating a strong coupling regime. Second, a parametric strong coupling between two different modes within single mechanical resonator in linear regime of small amplitudes will be presented, which is different from the strong modes coupling in nonlinear regime. Finally, I will show that a back-and-forth coherent exchange of phonon energy in two different vibration modes, to realize a classical Rabi oscillations.
