A Novel Method to Determine the Mechanical Properties of Ultra-Thin Films
Christopher C. White, Wen-Li Wu
Recent experimental results based on x-ray reflectivity, ellipsometry and positron annihilation spectroscopy, etc. have demonstrated that physical properties of polymer films thinner than one micron may deviate significantly from the expected bulk values. The mechanical properties of the ultra-thin films (sub-micron) are experimentally difficult to determine with precision. The quartz crystal microbalance is an established technique for measuring the mechanical properties of sub-micron polymer films with high precision. The details and preliminary results from this recently modified quartz crystal microbalance technique will be presented.
