The objective of this report is to calculate the Young’s modulus of gold cantilevers on the nanoscale using a force-deflection test performed on an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). These results are then compared to the Young’s modulus of gold on the macroscale. As shown from the results, the beam deflection tests confirm that the elastic modulus values obtained by this method are on the same order of magnitude as its macroscale counterpart.
