Abstract

An approach that makes it possible to study the elastic forces of a surface and surface damping from the results of measurements taken by an atomic force microscope functioning in semi-contact mode is proposed. An analytic relation between the measured quantities, on the one hand, and the elastic force of the surface and surface damping, on the other hand, is obtained.
