This approach considered ultrasonic frequencies beyond the response of the photodiode, so the direct oscillation of the cantilever was not observed. However, at high oscillation amplitudes (typically >0 4 nm), a nonzero dc tip deflection was observed. This observation implied that the nonlinear force–displacement curve was being probed, as expected from the models presented above. Moreover, the use of such frequencies reduced the tip oscillation amplitude dramatically, rendering it effectively immobile.

In the UFM image, the lateral lines are Al-filled trenches in the polymer matrix. There is an associated topography (Al lines are slightly depressed relative to the polymer). The UFM also reveals striations Nanomechanics of Nanoscale Materials Figure 13. 0 m AFM (left) and UFM (right) plan-view scans Al lines (dark regions in topography) in a polymer matrix (bright regions in topography). In the UFM scan, the contrast is reversed, as expected for an elastic image map. Note the local variation of the contrast within the polymer at the edges of the trench walls.

Note that the clamped beam models used to calculate E from experimental data require similar assumptions regarding the NT wall thickness as did the theoretical efforts [95]. 34 nm SWNT wall thickness (or MWNT wall spacing). Hence, their elasticity data should be compared with correspondingly normalized values of E from theoretical calculations. More direct measurements of SWNT mechanical response were undertaken by Salvetat et al. that exploited the surface adsorption of SWNT ropes to nanoporous templates to form suspended SWNT rope “beams” clamped at both ends by surface van der Waal forces [118].
