Paper Abstract

Ultrasonic atomic force microscopy (UAFM) is a new scientific tool realizing reliable measurement of nano-scale elasticity from resonance vibration of cantilever in the contact mode AFM. The elasticity is evaluated from the resonance frequency, and the loss modulus may be evaluated from Q the factor. This paper describes recent progress on the theoretical model, subsurface imaging, inverse analysis, nonlinearity due to a dislocation, and theory and experiment of Q control for improving resolution and stability.
