One shot measurement of 128 microcantilevers

Work by the Bionanomechanics Lab in collaboration with Mecwins and Nanosens presented in Review of Scientific Instruments. It shows single experiment measurement of a two-dimensional array of 128 cantilevers. In this work we measure the nanometer-scale bending of the 128 cantilevers, previously coated with a thin gold layer, induced by the adsorption and self-assembly on the gold surface of several self-assembled monolayers. The instrument explained here is able to provide the static and dynamic responses of cantilevers with subnanometer resolution and at a rate of up to ten cantilevers per second.
