Cantilever bending test. a Procedure for measuring the elastic modulus of a NW in the AFM contact mode [42]. b Tilt corrected SEM images from a bending experiment. (b-I) NW with AFM tip before deflection. (b-II) Image just before fracture. AFM tip was bent, too. (b-III) Broken NW, the fracture occurred where the NW becomes thicker in good accordance with the FE simulations that indicate the maximum stress there. Mainly due to electron beam induced contamination deposition, the NW sticks to the AFM tip [43]
