Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of
Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration under Contract DE-AC04-94AL85000.
The responses of micro-cantilever beams, with lengths
ranging from 100-1500 microns, have been found to exhibit
nonlinear dynamic characteristics at very low vibration
