A microbeam with adsorbates on its upper surface. The surface layers on the upper and lower surfaces have a finite thickness .
(a) Equilibrated positions of distributed adatoms with an interspacing and (b) the position changes of the adatoms and substrate atoms due to the cantilever deflection.
Maximal displacement at the free end of the cantilever induced by adsorption: (a) O on Si(100) and (b) Hg on Au(100). No effect of surface elasticity is considered in this figure.
Surface elasticity effects on the cantilever deflection: (a) O on Si(100) and (b) Hg on Au(100).
