    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...

    A calibrated method for the experimental determination of dynamic lateral force using a scanned probe in air has been applied to the measurement of force vs distance as the probe tip approaches a solid surface. The probe is a fused silica fiber vibrated with its axis perpendicular to the surface...
