The choice on which type of cantilever to use for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) depends on the type of the experiment being done. Typically, the cantilever has to be exchanged when a different stiffness is required and the entire alignment has to be repeated. In the present work, a method to adjust the stiffness in situ of a commercial AFM...

In situ stiffness adjustment in microelectromechanical systems is used in a variety of applications such as radio-frequency mechanical filters, energy harvesters, atomic force microscopy, vibration detection sensors. In this review we provide designers with an overview of existing stiffness adjustment methods, their working principle, and...

An increased amount of work is done towards opti- mizing the mechanical design of vibrational energy harvesters in order to cope with varying ambient conditions. Here the performance of a piezoelectric energy harvester with varying non-linear spring characteristics is modelled and experimentally veri- fied, determining the optimal non-linear...

Compliant mechanisms (CM) are a growing part of many different fields from MEMS to surgical devices. They offer a solution to classical mechanical drawbacks, such as friction, backlash, lubrication and assembly. One particular field of application concentrates on stiffness balance, also known as static balancing(SB), of mechanical systems. This...
