We report the fabrication of the high-quality Sb-doped ZnO nanobelts by using a simple chemical vapor deposition method. The nanobelts consist of single-crystalline wurtzite ZnO crystal and grow along [0112] direction. An electromechanical system is constructed to explore the transverse electrical properties of a single nanobelt under the different applied loading forces. The I-V results indicate that a little barrier exists in between the nanobelt and the atomic force microscopy tip. An almost linear relationship between the force and the resistance was found at small deformation regions, which demonstrates that the nanobelts have potential applications as force/pressure sensor for measuring the nano-Newton forces.
