3 1. complementary AFM TOPICS for NONCONTACT and TAPPING
AIM: Noncontact: Investigating conditions for occurrence of unwanted jump to contact, under beam vertical (scan horizontal) excitation, realizing conditions of external (parametric) forcing at primary (fundamental), subharmonic (principal), and superharmonic resonances Tapping: Discussing criticality of intermittent contact, highlighting effects of higher order eigenmodes, with relevant damping ratios, on overall system dynamics at various resonances ATOMIC INTERACTION POTENTIAL: Noncontact: solely attractive Tapping: attractive-repulsive CONTINUOUS MODELING: Noncontact: geometrically nonlinear beam, realizing a general platform for refined investigations Tapping: simple linear beam, to highlight involved effects of atomic interaction and modal dampings REDUCED-ORDER MODELING: Noncontact: minimal-order (single-mode) allowing systematic bifurcation analyses Tapping: multi-mode, with Rayleigh-based modal damping evaluation PHENOMENOLOGICAL FEATURES OF INTEREST: Noncontact: attractors robustness, basins erosion, dynamic integrity, system practical safety with respect to escape Tapping: nonlinear hysteresis, higher harmonics contribution, approach/retract separation, impact velocity, contact force, patterns/ranges of modal Q-factors (damping) NONLINEAR dynamicS of atomic force MicroscopY GIUSEPPE REGA

TAPPING-AFM: the tip operates in the ATTRACTIVE and REPULSIVE FORCE region, and TOUCHES the surface only FOR SHORT PERIODS, in order to reduce damages to potentially fragile samples. Recently, higher order bending modes gained significant interest (mostly for AFM in liquids) because of their very high Q-factors (low attenuation) and dynamic stiffnesses (Raman et al, 2008): Allow to drive a tip with very small amplitudes, which enables atomic-scale resolution. Shorter cycle time period of higher eigenmode considerably shorter time response (at least one cycle of oscillation) needed to capture data Non-trivially different responses in soft-impact dynamics of a cantilever beam when considering equivalent single-mode model more reliable multi-mode model Of major importance to reliably characterize velocities and forces at contact For TAPPING AFMs in AIR at various resonances: Extent of BISTABLE BEHAVIOR and IMPACT VELOCITY/CONTACT FORCE Effect of APPROACH/RETRACT SEPARATION Importance of HIGHER-ORDER EIGENMODES Influence of PATTERN/RANGE of DAMPING RATIOS NONLINEAR dynamicS of atomic force MicroscopY B. tapping AFM GIUSEPPE REGA

07/06/2013 2.2. modelING - QUASI-STATIC BEHAVIOR - 2 - As the probe specimen separation (distance) is reduced, the cantilever tip experiences an increasing attractive force toward the sample But when the distance falls below a critical value, there is a change in the interaction between tip and sample, and the tip snaps into contact When the distance is decreased and increased again, the tip snaps off on retraction This hysteretic and bistable behavior may meaningfully affect sample imaging, making the interpretation of the signal produced by the microscope quite difficult.
