The bending and tensile tests of the ZnO nanorods were carried out by controlling a force sensor and a nano-manipulator inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The force sensor was mounted on the nano-manipulator, was controlled with the nano-manipulate. The load response during the mechanical test for the ZnO nanorod was obtained by using the force sensor which is formed as a cantilever. The elastic modulus of the ZnO nanorods after the tensile and bending tests were calculated and compared. The elastic modulus of ZnO nanorods was depended on a size and an aspect ratio of the ZnO nanorods. The difference of the elastic modulus of ZnO nanorods was obtained with a difference of test methods performed along crystal facets direction of the ZnO nanorods. The average elastic modulus calculated after the tensile test was ∼57.15 GPa. In case of the bending test, the average elastic modulus was ∼29.37 GPa.
