31. Calibration of Piezoresistive Cantilever Force Sensors Using the NIST Electrostatic Force Balance
Published: 11/16/2003
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, David B Newell, John A Kramar, Eric Paul Whitenton
Abstract: The characterization of material properties and mechanical performance of micro-electromechanical devices often hinges on the accurate measurement of small forces.  Calibrated load cells of appropriate size and range are used, but are often not ...

32. Dependency of Morphology on Miscut Angle for Si(111) Etched in NH^d4^F
Published: 5/1/2003
Authors: Joseph Fu, Hui Zhou, John A Kramar, Richard M Silver, S Gonda
Abstract: Using scanning probe microscopy, we have examined the surfaces produced by etching several different vicinal Si(111) samples in NH^d4^F aqueous solution. In agreement with others, we found that deoxygenation of the etchant generally reduces the numbe ...

34. The NIST Microforce Realization and Measurement Project
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: David B Newell, Edwin Ross Williams, John A Kramar, Jon Robert Pratt, Douglas T Smith
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has launched a five-year Micro-force Realization and Measurement project focusing on the development of an instrument and laboratory capable of realizing and measuring the SI unit of force bel ...

35. Microforce and Instrumented Indentation Research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, David B Newell, John A Kramar, Douglas T Smith
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of recent efforts at the National Institute of Standards and TEchnology to develop metrology and standards to support general users of instrumented indentation and scan-probe devices. Research directed towards a primar ...

36. Probe-Force Calibration Experiments Using the NIST Electrostatic Force Balance
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, David B Newell, John A Kramar, J Mulholland, Eric Paul Whitenton
Abstract: The sensitivity of a piezoresistive cantilever force sensor has been determined by probing the weighing pan of the NIST prototype electrostatic force balance. In this experiment, micronewton contact forces between a force probe and the balance''s wei ...

39. A Flexure Balance With Adjustable Restoring Torque for Nanonewton Force Measurement
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, David B Newell, John A Kramar
Abstract: The NIST electrostatic force balance compares mechanical probe forces to an SI realization of force derived from measurements of the capacitance gradient and voltage in an electronic null balance. As we approach the nanonewton regime, the finite stif ...

40. NIST Electrostatic Force Balance Experiment
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: John A Kramar, David B Newell, Jon Robert Pratt
Abstract: We have designed and built a prototype electrostatic force balance for realizing forces in the micronewton range. The active electrodes are concentric cylinders, the outer serving as the reference and the inner suspended and guided by a rectilinear f ...
