Sensing Cantilever Beam Bending by the Optical Lever Technique and Its Application to Surface Stress

Evans, Drew; Craig, Vincent


Cantilever beams, both microscopic and macroscopic, are used as sensors in a great variety of applications. An optical lever system is commonly employed to determine the deflection and thereby the profile of the cantilever under load. The sensitivity of the optical lever must be calibrated, and this is usually achieved by application of a known load or deflection to the free end of the cantilever. When the sensing operation involves a different type of load or a combination of types of...[Show more]
