2 <<1 m Courtesy of Hubert GRANGE and Marie-Thérèse DELAYE (2004) CEA LETI …. forces are acting at the Nanoscale on MEMS and on NEMS

3 Nature of forces at Nanoscale: Photonic Radiation pressure van der Waals interaction Casimir effect Electrostatic Brownian Motion (k B T) Hard core repulsion Adhesion-metallic bonding Dissipation MEMS Parameters: atmosphere-vacuum surface roughness chemical nature nanostructuration restoring force (mechanical spring constant) surface/bulk elastic stress

4 L=1000nm=1 m A=50 mx50 m F Cas = 3pN Strong gradient: F L 5 > K mechanical instability When micromechanics and quantum electrodynamics meet: MEMS based on Casimir-Lifschitz forces Federico Capasso

6 L >> p retarded régime (Casimir régime) electron coupling to propagating photon modes dominant L << p NON retarded régime (Van der Waals) electron coupling to NON propagating photon modes dominant: surface plasmon-photon coupling p = 2 c/ p Characteristic length:plasma length Aluminum ћ p = 14eV p 100nm Origin: electron-photon coupling

10 Sphere/surface distance determination Cantilever spring constant measurement Static cantilever deflection F= -kx

15 Short distances: D<< p with p plasmon length, Force machine: sphere-surface distance 10nm Tuning fork K= N/m

17 Full scale is 0.3Hz The distance is again determined using capacitive interaction

19 Large surface roughness at the origin of our measurement no van der Waals contribution, instead direct metallic bonding

20 At nanoscale, attractive force between 2 metallic plates in vacuum
