    A novel diamagnetic lateral force calibrator (D-LFC) has been developed to directly calibrate atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilever-tip or -bead assemblies. This enables an AFM to accurately measure the lateral forces encountered in friction or biomechanical-testing experiments at a small...

    Chemical forces on surfaces have a central role in numerous scientific and technological fields, including catalysis, thin film growth and tribology. Many applications require knowledge of the strength of these forces as a function of position in three dimensions, but until now such information...

    Longitudinal and lateral forces acting on tyres are known to be closely related to tractive ability, braking characteristics, handling stability and manoeuvrability of ground vehicles. However, it is not feasible in the operating vehicles to measure the tyre forces directly because of the high...
