Title (EN) COUPLED SPRING SYSTEM FOR MEASURING MOLECULAR FORCES
(FR) SYSTEME A RESSORTS COUPLES POUR MESURER DES FORCES MOLECULAIRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A coupled spring system is applied to dynamic force spectroscopy measurements. A microcantilever-mounted probe (19) acts as a first spring, and a supported micromachined membrane (15) acts as a second spring. The coupled spring system provides a system spring constant that is lower than either spring individually. By probing different regions of the membrane (15), the spring constant of the system can be varied.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système à ressorts couplés appliqué à des mesures spectroscopiques de forces dynamiques. Une sonde montée en micro-porte-à-faux (19) agit comme premier ressort, et une membrane micro-usinée supportée (15) comme second ressort. Le système à ressorts couplés produit une raideur totale du système inférieure à chacun des deux ressorts individuellement. L'exploration de différentes zones de la membrane (15) permet de faire varier la raideur totale du système.
