Researchers at DOE's Oak Ridge (Tenn.) National Laboratory (ORNL) and Consultec Scientific, Knoxville, Tenn., have co-developed two devices based on microcantilever
When the other microcantilever
device is coated with a thin metal film on one side, it undergoes bending when exposed to infrared energy as a consequence of the bimetallic effect.
We consider a multispan microcantilever
of length L composed of N segments in which the displacement [v.sub.j](t, x) in the segment [x.sub.j-1] [less than or equal to] x [less than or equal to] [x.sub.j] is governed by the Euler-Bernoulli model
where [D.sub.0] is the initial deflection of the microcantilever
sensor obtained at 20% of humidity, D is the deflection after exposure to a flow of dry nitrogen, and [D.sub.f] is the minimum deflection after exposure to wet nitrogen using a water bubbler.
In this work, we have grown ZnO microrods on the microcantilever
surface as sensitive layers for gas detection and studied the effect of carbon monoxide (CO) on resonance frequency of the MC at a room temperature.

Consisting of carbon, hydrogen, silicon and oxygen molded into the shape of a nano-sized tip and integrated on the end of a silicon microcantilever
for use in atomic force microscopy, the material has technological implications for atomic imaging, probe-based data storage and as emerging applications such as nanolithography, nanometrology and nanomanufacturing.

Individual droplets were axially distorted between a micropipette and a microcantilever
in a stage-wise manner.
They placed water droplets containing proteins on a movable surface below a microcantilever
akin to a tiny diving board.
