Thermal conductance of bimaterial microcantilevers

Narayanaswamy, Arvind; Chen, Gang; Goh, Shireen; Shen, Sheng

In this letter, based on the beam theory and the thermal analysis of a bimaterial cantilever, we demonstrate that the effective thermal conductance of the cantilever and the temperature at the tip of the cantilever can be determined by measuring the bending of the cantilever in response to two different thermal inputs: power absorbed at the tip and ambient temperature.
