Nanocantilever Beams

Modeling, Fabrication and Applications

edited by Ioana Voiculescu and Mona Zaghloul

“Nanocantilever Beams: Modeling, Fabrication, and Applications presents a review of the state of the art in the nanocantilever beam technology. Owing to their high sensitivity and versatility in transduction methods, nanocantilever beams have been widely studied and applied for the detection of physical, chemical, and biological events. This book is an excellent scientific reference for practicing engineers, students, and researchers in mechanical, electrical, civil, and aerospace engineering as well as materials science. It contains 16 chapters that offer a broad range of information, including theory, design, fabrication, and applications, on diverse nanostructures such as nanocantilever beam, nanobridge, and nanomembane structures. The text also provides an important discussion and perspective on sensing applications in air, liquid, and vacuum. It is important in the field, particularly because there is currently no other book with similar topics focused on nanocantilever beams.
