A study of the mechanical properties of nanowires using nanoindentation.

A nanoindenter XP with scanning capabilities was used to perform nanoindentations on GaN and ZnO nanowires with radii in the range of 20-50 nm, positioned on a silicon substrate and bonded to the substrate at their ends with platinum. Since the geometry of indentation of a nanowire differs significa...
