Nanoscale measurements of Poisson's ratio with contact-resonance atomic force microscopy
Donna C. Hurley, J Turner
We describe contact-resonance atomic force microscopy (AFM) methods to quantitatively measure Poisson's ratio v or shear modulus G at the same time as Young's modulus E. In contact-resonance AFM, the frequencies of the cantilever's resonant vibrations are measured while the tip is in contact with the sample. Simultaneous measurement of flexural and torsional vibrational modes enables E and v to be determined separately. Analysis methods are presented to relate the contact-resonance frequencies to the tip-sample contact stiffness, which in turn determines sample's nanoscale elastic properties. Experimental results are presented for a glass specimen using fused silica as a reference material. The agreement between our contact-resonance AFM measurements and values obtained from other means demonstrates the validity of the basic method.
