This thesis revolves around nanomechanical membranes made of suspended two - dimensional materials. Chapters 1-3 give an introduction to the field of 2D-based nanomechanical devices together with an overview of the underlying physics and the measurementtools used in subsequent chapters. The research topics that are discussed can bedivided into four categories: characterisation (Chapters 4 and 5), sensors (Chapter 6),actuators (Chapters 7 and 8) and novel materials (Chapter 9).
