We report on the fabrication and characterization of superconducting flux qubit coupled to nanomechanical resonator vibration modes. Anisotropic and isotropic etching processes parameters of plasma created by a reactive ion etching of a CF4 gas, were optimized to suspend one arm of the qubit. One of the beams was characterized using a magnetomotive detection scheme in the transmission regime. And suspended beams with different length coupled to a superconducting flux qubits were characterized at base temperature by performing spectroscopy measurements.
