Abstract

Mechanical properties of free-standing single layers of Pt nanocrystals with particle diameters of 1.5 nm and 3.0 nm were examined via AFM by fitting force–indentation curves. It showed that the Young's moduli of Pt membranes were in the range of 1–10 GPa and fracture strengths were in the range of 1–30 MPa.
