51. Traceable Force Metrology for Micronewton Level Calibration
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, Richard Seugling
Abstract: The research presented in this abstract concerns the calibration and implementation of a prototype secondary force standard to disseminate the SI (Syst?me International d''unit?s) unit of force ranging from 5.0 mN to 5.0 mN. The elastic-force measuri ...

53. Progress Towards Systeme International d'Unites Traceable Force Metrology for Nanomechanics
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, Douglas T Smith, David B Newell, John A Kramar, Eric Paul Whitenton
Abstract: Recent experiments with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Electrostatic Force Balance (EFB) have achieved agreement between an electrostatic force and a gravitational force of 10^(-5) N to within a few hundred pN/¿N. This resu ...

54. 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 ...

57. 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 ...

58. Compact Force Sensors for Low-Force Mechanical Probe Calibration
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, Douglas T Smith, S Woody
Abstract: The loading mechanisms of instrumented indentation machines are often calibrated using deadweights. In many cases, due to the geometry of the loading frame, the applied deadweight is tensile, while the indentation leads to be measured are compressive ...
