Title: Force Calibrations in the Nanonewton Regime
Published: January 01, 1994
Abstract: An instrument is described which is shown capable of making preliminary measurements of nanonewton forces. A technique is described which allows absolute calibrations of small forces to be made in terms of electrical measurements.
