FIG. 2.

(Color) Free-body diagrams showing (a) the contractive force exerted by within a single functional unit of the beam along with the associated upward bending moment and (b) the bending moment for the entire cantilever beam that produces an out-of-plane displacement .

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(Color) Schematic diagram (a) of the proposed mechanism of the device’s operation. The experimental data (b) show bending of the four cantilever beams, as the aqueous oxidant (Ox) and reductant (Red) solutions are delivered to the sample cell. A negative deflection corresponds to an upward bending of the cantilever beams. The top series of traces shows the deflection of the cantilever array coated with , while the bottom series of traces (offset by ) shows the limited movement of the cantilever array coated with the dumbbell control compound .
