We consider the electromechanical properties of a single-electronic device consisting of a movable quantum dot attached to a vibrating cantilever, forming a tunnel contact with a nonmovable source electrode. We show that the resonance Kondo tunneling of electrons amplifies exponentially the strength of nanoelectromechanical (NEM) coupling in such a device and make the latter insensitive to mesoscopic fluctuations of electronic levels in a nanodot. It is also shown that the study of a Kondo-NEM phenomenon provides additional (as compared with standard conductance measurements in a nonmechanical device) information on retardation effects in the formation of a many-particle cloud accompanying the Kondo tunneling. A possibility for superhigh tunability of mechanical dissipation as well as supersensitive detection of mechanical displacement is demonstrated.
