Determining the broken symmetries in the strongly correlated states of unconventional superconductors is critical to their understanding. I will present a measurement technique currently being developed to probe symmetry breaking by examining the elastic moduli in crystalline micro-resonators in their competing ground states. We use Focused Ion Beam (FIB) micro-machining to cut cantilevers with well-defined geometry and crystallographic direction directly out of high-quality single crystals. The hundred-nanometer resolution of FIB fabrication leads to well-defined boundary conditions for the simulation of the elastic problem. We propose to explore symmetries by studying the resonance frequencies of cantilevers with different crystallographic orientations and complex shapes. The proximity of the pseudogap in cuprates and nematicity in pnictides to superconductivity raises the question of their interplay and possible common origin. Particularly, the pseudogap is debated to be either a crossover of energy scales or a distinct thermodynamic phase. With this novel approach we aim to identify the symmetries in the pseudogap, probing current theoretical predictions.
