Statistics for Quantifying the Mechanical Properties of Nanomaterials
In the paper, the up-to-date advances in the statistical analysis of nano-mechanical measurements are briefly reviewed. It is shown that, by means of statistical methods such as a minimum information criterion, a better statistical model can be selected for quantifying the intrinsic mechanical properties of nanomaterials or extracting the optimal information from those imperfect experimental data obtained with recently available nano-mechanical testing techniques.
