Young’s Modulus of Nanohoneycomb Structures According to the Porosity
Young’s modulus of nanohoneycomb structures in the vertical direction relative to the pore (generally along the beam length) is measured according to the porosity from bending tests in atomic force microscopy (AFM). The pore diameters of the nanohoneycomb structures are from about 30 to 60 nm. To determine the Young’s modulus of the nanohoneycomb structures, the area moment of inertia of the nanohoneycomb structure is determined according to the arrangement of the pores. The area moment of inertia of the nanohoneycomb structure is found to be affected by the porosity of the nanohoneycomb structures. The Young’s modulus of the nanohoneycomb structures decreases as a function of the porosity in a large range.
