Structure and nanotribology of thermally deposited gold nanoparticles on graphite
We present experiments involving the structural and frictional characterization of gold nanoparticles (AuNP) thermally deposited on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). The effect of thermal deposition amount, as ...
Artifacts related to tip asymmetry in high-resolution atomic force microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy measurements of graphitic surfaces
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2015)
The effect of tip asymmetry on atomic-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy measurements of graphitic surfaces has been investigated via numerical simulations. Employing a three-dimensional, ...
Structural superlubricity of platinum on graphite under ambient conditions: the effects of chemistry and geometry
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2017)
An investigation of the frictional behavior of platinum nanoparticles laterally manipulated on graphite has been conducted to answer the question of whether the recent observation of structural superlubricity under ambient ...
Noncontact atomic force microscopy for atomic-scale characterization of material surfaces
Among the large variety of scanning probe microscopy techniques, noncontact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) stands out with its capability of atomic-resolution imaging and spectroscopy measurements on conducting, ...
Analysis of amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy in aqueous salt solutions
We present a numerical analysis of amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy in aqueous salt solutions, by considering the interaction of the microscope tip with a model sample surface consisting of a hard substrate and ...
Simultaneous measurement of multiple independent atomic-scale interactions using scanning probe microscopy: data interpretation and the effect of cross-talk
(American Chemical Society, 2015)
In high-resolution scanning probe microscopy, it is becoming increasingly common to simultaneously record multiple channels representing different tip-sample interactions to collect complementary information about the ...
