Friction force microscopy: a simple technique for identifying graphene on rough substrates and mapping the orientation of graphene grains on copper. Force when imaging in air • references general concept and defining characteristics of afm scanned-proximity probe microscopes provide very high resolution images of various sample properties the atomic force microscope is one of about two dozen types of scanned-proximity probe microscopes. In this work we show that friction force microscopy is a simple technique for identifying graphene even on rough insulating samples it is particularly effective for analysing graphene grown on metal substrates, allowing the inter-relationship between surface topography and graphene growth to be observed.
Using an optical profiler and an atomic/friction force microscope (afm/ffm), measurements on the hydrophobic leaves, both with and without wax, were made to fully characterize the leaf surface. Force microscopy, performed in ultra-high vacuum on cu(100) and au(111) surfaces, reveals a clear stick-slip modulation in the lateral force but almost zero dissipation. Rw carpick, “the study of contact, adhesion and friction at the atomic scale by atomic force microscopy”, phd thesis, 1997 43 typical microfabricated cantilevers have tip heights ~ 3 - 4 µm and lengths ~ 80 - 300 µm, so the lateral force signals are ~ 20 to 80 times smaller than the normal force signals.
-50 nn, the friction force is extremely low zero within the error of the measurement, and does not vary with load the lower limit of the applied load is given by the adhesion force below which the tip would jump off the surface above a load of -50 nn, the friction force slightly increases with load.

Friction force microscopy (ffm) can detect lateral force variations on the atomic scale when sliding a sharp tip over a flat surface the sliding often takes the form of a stick-slip movement with the same periodicity as the atomic lattice. Robert w carpick, phd thesis ”1997 the study of contact, adhesion and friction at the atomic scale by atomic force microscopy by robert william carpick.
This thesis comes within the scope of tribology studies at the nanometer scale the experimental techniques used in this work are essentially related to atomic force microscopy, which gives a direct access to the topography and forces of the studied systems. This thesis describes the construction of an atomic force microscope and its application to the study of tip-sample interactions, primarily through the use of friction and hardness (elasticity) imaging.
