    Collecting optical coherence elastography depth profiles with a micromachined cantilever probe

    We present an experimental setup that combines optical coherence elastography depth sensing with atomic force microscope indentation. The instrument relies on a miniaturized cantilever probe that compresses a sample with a small footprint force and simultaneously collects an optical coherence tomography (OCT) depth profile underneath the indenting point. The deflection of the cantilever can be monitored via optical fiber interferometry with a resolution of 2 nm. The OCT readout then provides depth profiles of the subsurface layer deformation with 15 nm resolution and depth range of a few millimeters.
