  1. 1. Surface interactions and adsorbate structures : An atomic force microscopy study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemi

    Author : Goran Bogdanovic; [2002]
    Keywords : atomic force microscope; AFM; cantilever calibration; colloidal probe; surface force; force curve; friciton; hydrophobic; adhesion; roughness; multilayer; silica; cellulose; cationic polyelectrolyte; MAPTAC;

    Abstract : Atomic force microscopy, AFM, was used for studying somecurrent topics in the field of surface and colloid science. Themain topics addressed in this thesis were: the nature of thelong-range attraction between hydrophobic surfaces; slidingfriction behavior for microscopic contacts; and interfacialstructuring of polyelectrolyte-nanoparticle multilayerfilms.

  2. 2. Imaging materials with intermodulation Studies in multifrequency atomic force microscopy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Daniel Forchheimer; David Haviland; Arvind Raman; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; atomic force microscopy; nonlinear dynamics; frequency mixing; force reconstruction; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is a tool for imaging surfaces at the microand nano meter scale. The microscope senses the force acting between a surfaceand a tip positioned at the end of a micro-cantilever, forming an image of the surface topography. READ MORE
