Schematic illustration of the experimental setup. Orthogonal signals (nanomechanical IR spectra and mass variations) are measured by optical beam deflection method using a red diode laser and a position sensitive detector (PSD). These nonradiative decay processes result in heating up the bi-material cantilever, generating the deflection of the cantilever.
