We study the elastic deformation of few layers (5 to 25) thick freely suspended MoS2 nanosheets by means of a nanoscopic version of a bending test experiment, carried out with the tip of an atomic force microscope. The Young's modulus of these nanosheets is extremely high (E = 0.33 TPa), comparable to that of graphene oxide, and the deflections are reversible up to tens of nanometers. 
Mechanical properties of freely suspended semiconducting graphene-like layers based on MoS2

Mechanical properties of nanosheets and nanotubes using a new geometry independent volume definition
Cross-sectional area and volume become difficult to define as material dimensions approach the atomic scale. This limits transferability of macroscopic concepts such as Young’s modulus. We propose aExpand

TLDR
The elastic modulus of freely suspended graphene monolayers, obtained via chemical reduction of graphene oxide, was determined through tip-induced deformation experiments, pointing toward a 2-fold role of the oxygen bridges, that is, to impart a bond reinforcement while at the same time impeding the charge transport.
