These mesoscale-patterned surfaces can also provide a model system for investigating the interface properties of actual surfaces. Introduction

In a series of experiments they have shown how the domain shapes in these relatively mobile films (prior to deposition) depend on alkyl chain

Creeping Friction Dynamics and Molecular Dissipation

The dissipation mechanism of nanoscale kinetic friction between an atomic force microscopy tip and a surface of amorphous glassy polystyrene has been studied as a function of two parameters: the scanning velocity and the temperature. Superposition of the friction results using the method of reduced

Atomic Force Microscope Image Contrast Mechanisms on

ABSTRACT This work presents a methodology to measure and quantitatively interpret force curves on supported lipid bilayers in water. We then use this method to correlate topographic imaging contrast in atomic force microscopy (AFM) images of phase-separated Langmuir-Blodgett bilayers with imaging load. Force curves collected on pure monolayers

In addition, the friction force showed a wide variation with measurement location on the film. This difference was assigned to differences in polymer backbone alignment relative to the scanning direction.

The atomic force microscope can also investigate the local frictional and elastic properties of the films with nanometer resolution (41).
