A modification of the geometry used in the sin2 [psi] technique of X-ray diffraction is described. A modified equation for residual stress determination, including geometric adapted Fij, is presented. This method allows near surface stress gradients determination and is called pseudo-grazing incidence method. The limits of the new technique were first tested on different powder materials with X-ray radiation produced by conventional tubes and by a synchrotron radiation source. The technique was finally applied for the determination of a residual stress profile in a polished molybdenum surface before and after the deposition of a PVD chromium film.; http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/B6TXD-40GHPVT-C/1/82a45e55041866281a13e3fc1bf8cc4c

X-ray diffraction assisted four-point bending method (XRDABM) enables to analyze the evolution of surface stress
with the strain during bending of specimens. This experimental methodology was used to characterize the stressstrain
behavior of two plasma nitriding steels, DIN 40 Cr Mn Mo 7 and DIN 32 Cr Mo V 13, with gradients of
mechanical properties across the surface layers, allowing the characterization of the in-depth evolution of the local
yield strength in the nitrided layer. The results show a significantly increase of the yield strength of the nitride
layers and a good agreement between the in-depth evolution of the yield strength and the XRD peak breadth for
the two nitrided steels.

The simplest parameterized model of the "passive" or "resting receptive" neutrophil views the cell as being composed of an outer cortex surrounding an essentially liquid-like highly viscous cytoplasm. This cortex has been measured to maintain a small persistent tension of approximately 0.035 dyn/cm (Evans and Yeung. 1989. Biophys. J. 56:151-160) and is responsible for recovering the spherical shape of the cell after large deformation. The origin of the cortical tension is at present unknown, but speculations are that it may be an active process related to the sensitivity of a given cell to external stimulation and the "passive-active" transition. In order to characterize further this feature of the neutrophil we have used a new micropipet manipulation method to give a sensitive measure of the surface stress as a function of the surface area dilation of the highly ruffled cellular membrane. In the experiment, a single cell is driven down a tapered pipet in a series equilibrium deformation positions. Each equilibrium position represents a balance between the stress in the membrane and the pressure drop across the cell. For most cells that seemed to be "passive," as judged by their spherical appearance and lack of pseudopod activity, area dilations of approximately 30% were accompanied by only a small increase in the membrane tension...

Microcantilever sensor technology has been steadily growing for the last fifteen years. While we have gained a great amount of knowledge in microcantilever bending due to surface stress changes, which is a unique property of microcantilever sensors, we are still in the early stages of understanding the fundamental surface chemistries of surface-stress-based microcantilever sensors. In general, increasing surface stress, which is caused by interactions on the microcantilever surfaces, would improve the S/N ratio, and subsequently the sensitivity and reliability of microcantilever sensors. In this review, we will summarize: A) the conditions under which a large surface stress can readily be attained, and B) the strategies to increase surface stress in case a large surface stress can not readily be reached. We will also discuss our perspectives on microcantilever sensors based on surface stress changes.

We review the application of cantilever-based stress measurements in surface science and magnetism. The application of thin (thickness appr. 0.1 mm) single crystalline substrates as cantilevers has been used successfully to measure adsorbate-induced surface stress changes, lattice misfit induced film stress, and magneto-elastic stress of ferromagnetic monolayers. Surface stress changes as small as 0.01 N/m can be readily measured, and this translates into a sensitivity for adsorbate-coverage well below 0.01 of one layer. Stress as large as several GPa, beyond the elasticity limits of high strength materials, is measured, and it is ascribed to the lattice misfit between film and substrate. Our results point at the intimate relation between surface stress and surface reconstruction, stress-induced structural changes in epitaxially strained films, and strain-induced modifications of the magneto-elastic coupling in ferromagnetic monolayers.

Micro-cantilever sensors are widely used to detect biomolecules, chemical gases, and ionic species. However, the theoretical descriptions and predictive modeling of these devices are not well developed, and lag behind advances in fabrication and applications. In this paper, we present a novel multiscale simulation framework for nanomechanical sensors. This framework, combining density functional theory (DFT) calculations and finite element method (FEM) analysis, is capable of analyzing molecular adsorption-induced deformation and stress fields in the sensors from the molecular scale to the device scale. Adsorption of alkanethiolate self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on the Au(111) surface of the micro-cantilever sensor is studied in detail to demonstrate the applicability of this framework. DFT calculations are employed to investigate the molecular adsorption-induced surface stress upon the gold surface. The 3D shell elements with initial stresses obtained from the DFT calculations serve as SAM domains in the adsorption layer, while FEM is employed to analyze the deformation and stress of the sensor devices. We find that the micro-cantilever tip deflection has a linear relationship with the coverage of the SAM domains. With full coverage...

The propagation of long wavelength disturbances on the surface of a fluid layer of finite depth is considered. Attention is focused on the effect of stress applied at the surface. Constant surface tension leads to a normal stress at the surface, but the presence of a surfactant or the application of an electric field can give rise to tangential stresses. In the large Reynolds number limit, the evolution equation for the surface elevation contains contributions from both boundary layers in the flow; one is adjacent to the free surface while the other lies at the base of the fluid layer.Aweakly non-linear analysis is performed leading to an evolution equation similar to the classic Korteweg-de Vries equation, but modified by additional terms due to the viscosity and to the tangential and normal stress at the surface. It is demonstrated that careful treatment of the boundary layer at the free surface is necessary when the tangential stress at the surface is non-zero. Particular cases of flows with tangential surface stress due the presence of a surfactant or due to an electric field are discussed, and a pseudo-spectral scheme is used in order to obtain some typical numerical results.

Obwohl die absolute Oberflächenspannung eine für viele Anwendungen relevante,
fundamentale Eigenschaft von Festkörperoberflächen ist, existiert bisher kein
Verfahren, mit dem diese makroskopische Größe mit akzeptabler Genauigkeit
gemessen werden kann. Änderungen der Oberflächenspannung lassen sich mit der
sogenannten Biegebalkenmethode ermitteln, Absolutwerte dagegen nicht.
Nach einem von Müller und Kern 1994 aufgestellten Modell hat die absolute
Oberflächenspannung einen nicht vernachlässigbaren Einfluß auf die durch die
Schwerkraft verursachte Deformation von sehr dünnen, waagerecht aufgehängten
Einkristallen. Eine Messung des Effektes ist allerdings technisch
anspruchsvoll und wurde in der vorliegenden Arbeit erstmals realisiert.
Durch den Einsatz von Phasenschiebungs-Interferometrie ist es gelungen, die
Biegelinie eines 25,4 mm langen und ca. 50 Mikrometer dicken Si(111)-Streifen
zu bestimmen. Dabei zeigte sich jedoch, daß die Deformation von der absoluten
Oberflächenspannung unabhängig ist. Dieses Verhalten konnte durch eine
ausführliche theoretische Analyse erklärt werden, wobei das Modell von Müller
und Kern widerlegt wurde. Tatsächlich tritt die vorhergesagte Abhängigkeit nur
unter speziellen Randbedingungen auf. Aus einem überarbeiteten Modell konnte
eine neue Probengeometrie abgeleitet werden...

Aircraft data collected at approximately 15 m above the sea surface in the
coastal zone are analyzed to examine the spatial distribution of surface stress. Advection
of stronger turbulence from land dominates the near-surface turbulence for the first few
kilometers offshore. With offshore flow of warm air over cold water, strong stratification
leads to very small surface stress. Because the stability restricts the momentum transfer to
the waves, the aerodynamic surface roughness decreases to very small values, which in
turn decreases atmospheric mixing. The redevelopment of the boundary layer farther
downstream is examined. Computation of fluxes from observations for stable cases is
difficult due to a variety of errors including large random flux errors, possible instrumental
loss of small-scale flux, difference between the surface flux and that at the observational
level, and inadvertent capture of mesoscale motions in the computed turbulent
fluctuations. Although the errors appear to be substantial, the aircraft momentum fluxes
compare favorably with those from sonic anemometers on two buoys and a tower at the
end of a 570-m pier, even with near collapse of the turbulence.

Les microcantileviers fonctionnalisés offrent une plateforme idéale pour la nano- et micro-mécanique et pour le développement de (bio-) capteurs tres sensible. Le principe d’opération consiste dans des évènements physicochimiques qui se passent du côté fonctionnalisé du microcantilevier induisant une différence de stress de surface entre les deux côtés du cantilevier qui cause une déflexion verticale du levier. Par contre, les facteurs et les phénomènes interfacials qui régissent la nature et l'intensité du stress de surface sont encore méconnus. Pour éclaircir ce phénomène, la première partie de cette thèse porte sur l'étude des réactions de microcantileviers qui sont recouverts d'or et fonctionnalisés par une monocouche auto-assemblée (MAA) électroactive.
La formation d'une MAA de ferrocènylundécanethiol (FcC11SH) à la surface d'or d'un microcantilevier est le modèle utilisé pour mieux comprendre le stress de surface induit par l’électrochimie. Les résultats obtenus démontrent qu'une transformation rédox de la MAA de FcC11SH crée un stress de surface qui résulte dans une déflexion verticale du microcantilevier. Dépendamment de la flexibilité du microcantilevier, cette déflexion peut varier de quelques nanomètres à quelques micromètres. L’oxydation de cette MAA de FcC11SH dans un environnement d'ions perchlorate génère un changement de stress de surface compressive. Les résultats indiquent que la déflexion du microcantilevier est due à une tension latérale provenant d'une réorientation et d'une expansion moléculaire lors du transfért de charge et de pairage d’anions.

## Capillarity of soft amorphous solids: a microscopic model for surface stress

The elastic deformation of a soft solid induced by capillary forces crucially
relies on the excess stress inside the solid-liquid interface. While for a
liquid-liquid interface this "surface stress" is strictly identical to the
"surface free energy", the thermodynamic Shuttleworth equation implies that
this is no longer the case when one of the phases is elastic. Here we develop a
microscopic model that incorporates enthalpic interactions and entropic
elasticity, based on which we explicitly compute the surface stress and surface
free energy. It is found that the compressibility of the interfacial region,
through the Poisson ratio near the interface, determines the difference between
surface stress and surface energy. We highlight the consequence of this finding
by comparing with recent experiments and simulations on partially wetted soft
substrates.

While measurements of the polar dependence of the surface free energy are
easily available, measurements of the whole polar dependence of the surface
stress of a crystal do not exist. In this paper is presented a new procedure
that allows, for the first time, the experimental determination of the surface
stress polar dependence of a crystal. For this purpose (1) electromigration is
used to control the kinetic faceting of surface orientations that belong to the
equilibrium shape of the crystal and (2) for each destabilised surface, the
period of faceting as well as the crystallographic angles of the appearing
facets are measured by AFM. The so-obtained data lead to a set of equations
whose mathematical solution, compatible with physical constraints, gives access
to the surface stress polar dependence of the whole crystal and thus to a
better understanding of surface stress properties.; Comment: 8 pages, 6 Figures

A stress exists in solids surfaces, similarly to liquids, also if the
underlying bulk material is stress-free. This paper investigates the surface
stress effect on the measured value of the Si lattice parameter used to
determine the Avogadro constant by counting Si atoms. An elastic-film model has
been used to provide a surface load in a finite element analysis of the lattice
strain of the x-ray interferometer crystal used to measure the lattice
parameter. Eventually, an experiment is proposed to work a lattice parameter
measurement out so that there is a visible effect of the surface stress.

Puzzling trends in surface stress were reported experimentally for Ni/W(110)
as a function of Ni coverage. In order to explain this behavior, we have
performed a density-functional-theory study of the surface stress and atomic
structure of the pseudomorphic and of several different possible 1x7
configurations for this system. For the 1x7 phase, we predict a different, more
regular atomic structure than previously proposed based on surface x-ray
diffraction. At the same time, we reproduce the unexpected experimental change
of surface stress between the pseudomorphic and 1x7 configuration along the
crystallographic surface direction which does not undergo density changes. We
show that the observed behavior in the surface stress is dominated by the
effect of a change in Ni adsorption/coordination sites on the W(110) surface.; Comment: 14 pages, 3 figures Published in J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 24 (2012)

Consider a surface, enclosing a fixed volume, described by a free-energy
depending only on the local geometry; for example, the Canham-Helfrich energy
quadratic in the mean curvature describes a fluid membrane. The stress at any
point on the surface is determined completely by geometry. In equilibrium, its
divergence is proportional to the Laplace pressure, normal to the surface,
maintaining the constraint on the volume. It is shown that this source itself
can be expressed as the divergence of a position-dependent surface stress. As a
consequence, the equilibrium can be described in terms of a conserved
`effective' surface stress. Various non-trivial geometrical consequences of
this identification are explored. In a cylindrical geometry, the cross-section
can be viewed as a closed planar Euler elastic curve. With respect to an
appropriate centre the effective stress itself vanishes; this provides a
remarkably simple relationship between the curvature and the position along the
loop. In two or higher dimensions, it is shown that the only geometry
consistent with the vanishing of the effective stress is spherical. It is
argued that the appropriate generalization of the loop result will involve
`null' stresses.; Comment: 18 pages

The general approach for the consideration of the magnetoelectric effects in
ferroic nanorods is proposed in the framework of the phenomenological theory.
The intrinsic surface stress, magneto- and electrostriction as well as
piezoelectric and piezomagnetic effects are included into the free energy. The
intrinsic surface stress under the curved nanoparticle surface is shown to play
an important role in the shift of ferroelectric and ferromagnetic transition
temperatures and built-in magnetic and electric fields appearance, which are
inversely proportional to the nanorod radius. We consider the case of quadratic
and linear magnetoelectric coupling coefficients. The linear coupling
coefficient is radius independent, whereas the quadratic ones include terms
inversely proportional to the nanorod radius and thus strongly increase with
decrease of the radius. The predicted giant relative dielectric tunability in
the vicinity of ferromagnetic and ferroelectric phase transition points induced
by quadratic magnetoelectric coupling increases by 2-50 times. The quadratic
magnetoelectric coupling dramatically changes the phase diagrams of ferroic
nanorods when the radius decreases. In particular the second order phase
transition may become a first one...

## Homogenization of Rough Surfaces: Effective Surface Stress and Superficial Elasticity

Relating microstructure to properties, electromagnetic, mechanical, thermal
and their couplings has been a major focus of mechanics, physics and materials
science. The majority of the literature focuses on deriving homogenized
constitutive responses for macroscopic composites relating effective properties
to various microstructural details. Due to large surface to volume ratio,
phenomena at the nanoscale require consideration of surface energy effects and
the latter are frequently used to interpret size-effects in material behavior.
Elucidation of the effect of surface roughness on the surface stress and
elastic behavior is relatively under-studied and quite relevant to the behavior
of nanostructures. In this work, we present derivations that relate both
periodic and random roughness to the effective surface elastic behavior. We
find that the residual surface stress is hardly affected by roughness while the
superficial elasticity properties are dramatically altered and, importantly,
may also result in a change in its sign - this has ramifications in
interpretation of sensing based on frequency measurement changes due to surface
elasticity. We show that the square of resonance frequency of a cantilever beam
with rough surface decreases as much as three times of its value for flat
surface.

Strain relaxations of a p(1x2) ordered oxygen layer on W(110) are measured as
a function of temperature across the disordering transition using low-energy
electron diffraction. The measured strains approach values of 0.027 in the
[1-10] and -0.053 in the [001] direction. On the basis of the measured strain
relaxations, we give quantitative information on temperature-dependent surface
stress using the results of ab initio calculations. From the surface formation
energy for different strains, determined by first-principles calculations, we
estimate that surface stress changes from -1.1 for the ordered phase to -0.2N/m
for the disordered one along [1-10], and from 5.1 to 3.4 N/m along [001].
Moreover, our observation that the strains scale inversely with domain size
confirms that the strain relaxation takes place at the domain boundaries.; Comment: 8 pages, 5 figures

We use computer simulations to study the behavior of atomically sharp and
blunted cracks in various f.c.c. metals. The simulations use effective medium
potentials which contain many-body interactions. We find that when using
potentials representing platinum and gold a sharp crack is stable with respect
to the emission of a dislocation from the crack tip, whereas for all other
metals studied the sharp crack is unstable. This result cannot be explained by
existing criteria for the intrinsic ductile/brittle behavior of crack tips, but
is probably caused by surface stresses. When the crack is no longer atomically
sharp dislocation emission becomes easier in all the studied metals. The effect
is relatively strong; the critical stress intensity factor for emission to
occur is reduced by up to 20%. This behavior appears to be caused by the
surface stress near the crack tip. The surface stress is a consequence of the
many-body nature of the interatomic interactions. The enhanced dislocation
emission can cause an order-of-magnitude increase in the fracture toughness of
certain materials, in which a sharp crack would propagate by cleavage.
Collisions with already existing dislocations will blunt the crack, if this
prevents further propagation of the crack the toughness of the material is
dramatically increased.; Comment: LaTeX...

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

#Keywords: Atomic force microscopy#Calibration#Microscopic examination#Optical properties#Stress analysis#Distributed loadings#Stoney's equation#Surface stress#Cantilever beams

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 loadings, the calibration and the deflection values derived from it become invalid. Here we develop a master equation that permits the true deflection of the cantilever to be obtained simply from the measurement of the apparent deflection for uniformly distributed loadings and end-moment loadings. These loadings are relevant to the uniform adsorption or application of material to the cantilever or the application of a surface stress to the cantilever and should assist experimentalists using the optical lever, such as in the atomic force microscope, to measure cantilever deflections in a great variety of sensing applications. We then apply this treatment to the experimental evaluation of surface stress. Three forms of Stoney's equation that relate the apparent deflection to the surface stress...
