The development of strategies to measure the properties of materials with nanoscopic dimensions is a necessary but challenging topic in nanoscale science and technology. Here, combinatorial arrays of specially designed test structures are used to quantify the deformation of micro- and nanoscale polymer beams in response to well-defined capillary forces. In the Figure, increasing capillary forces from left to right act on beams 95 nm wide.
