Paper Abstract

This project investigates the magnetic structure and mechanical properties of iron-gallium nanowires to facilitate the modeling and design of sensor devices. Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) is employed to better understand the domain orientation and size along the cross-section of a close packed wire array. Mechanical properties are identified by conducting static tensile testing on individual nanowires using a manipulator stage designed for use within a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The Young's modulus of the nanowires is found to agree well with the value for the bulk material, but these structures do demonstrate a large increase in ultimate tensile strength. Other tests include resonance identification of nanowire beam bending via dynamic excitation.
