cantilever

A beam or overhanging architectural element that is supported at only one end.The most common examples are bay windows and swimming pool diving boards.The most famous example is a balcony that seems to be suspended in the air above a waterfall at Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece, Fallingwater, in Pennsylvania (www.paconserve.org/fallingwaterhome.htm).

Finally, it is important to note that the piezo method used to move the AFM tip or sample in x, y, and z is independent from the piezo used to actuate or vibrate the cantilever, often referred to as a "shake" or "dither" piezo.
It could aid in the drug discovery process by preventing lead-drug candidates from being disregarded due to a lack of equipment with sufficient sensitivity, and its hope is to jumpstart an already stagnated drug-pipeline by providing this sensitivity in an efficient manner-the cantilever method can simultaneously measure and track a variety of drug-bacteria interactions in real time.
