Analysis shows that directed neutrino beams could be generated by using electron-capture β-decay sources, and the requirements for the magnetic field and temperature are discussed. The recoil forces produced by 119Sb and 57Co sources are estimated, and it is shown that the neutrino emissions from a 119Sb source could be detected using an atomic force microscope.
