We report on the characterization and tuning of the mechanical modes of high-Q SiN-membrane oscillators [1]. Such membranes are used in many optomechanical experiments and have Q-factors up to 107 with frequencies in the hundreds of kHz regime and masses of a few ng, resulting in large ground state and thermal amplitudes. We show that the membrane eigenfrequencies can be tuned by locally heating the membranes with laser light, resulting in a release of tensile stress. We observe that the Q-factor changes in a reproducible way by more than two orders of magnitude as a function of membrane frequency and reveals distinct resonances. We show that these resonances can be explained by coupling to localized frame modes. Away from the resonances, the Q-factor is independent of frequency. Higher order modes show the same maximum Q, but different coupling strengths to the frame.
