Methods in force microscopy

Senden, Tim J


This thesis describes the direct measurement of surface forces in aqueous systems using an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The imaging of surfaces is usually regarded to be the primary function of the AFM, however in this study, imaging is regarded as secondary to force measurement. Experimental procedures have been developed for the measurement and assessment of surface forces. These procedures include control over geometry, scaling of force and avoidance of contamination. Three distinct...[Show more]
