Running title: Friction, Adhesion, and Deformation
Abstract. A selection of recent experimental and theoret-
ical work involving the atomic force microscope is reviewed,
with the focus being upon dynamic measurements. Four top-
ics are covered: calibration techniques for the friction force
microscope, quantitative measurements of friction and the ef-
fect of adhesion, measurement and theory for the deformation
and adhesion of viscoelastic particles, and the interaction and
adhesion of hydrophobic surfaces due to bridging nanobub-
bles.
I. INTRODUCTION
The atomic force microscope (AFM) [1] is commonly
used to image surfaces and to study the interaction and
adhesion of particles. The wide-spread adoption of the
AFM is due to its ease of use, the molecular-level infor-
