Reversible strain amplitudes up to 0.02% in response to a 15% change in relative humidity were detected in nanoporous gold. We show that the mechanism involved in dimensional changes during physisorption is associated with changes in the surface stress when molecules are adsorbed from the vapor phase onto the metal interface.
