  • How localized are energy dissipation processes in nanoscale interactions? 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Verdaguer, Albert; Font Teixidó, Josep; Thomson, Neil H.; Chiesa, Mateo (2011-07-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    We describe fundamental energy dissipation in dynamic nanoscale processes in terms of the localization of the interactions. In this respect, the areal density of the energy dissipated and the effective area of interaction ...
  • Investigation of nanoscale interactions by means of subharmonic excitation 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Phillips, M.A.; Verdaguer, Albert; Font Teixidó, Josep; Chiesa, Matteo; Gadelrab,, K.; Stefancich, M.; Armstrong, P.; Li, G.; Souier, T.; Thomson, Neil H.; Barcons Xixons, Víctor (2012-08-16)

    Multifrequency atomic force microscopy holds promise as a method to provide qualitative and quantitative information about samples with high spatial resolution. Here, we provide experimental evidence of the excitation of ...
  • Spatial horizons in amplitude and frequency modulation atomic force microscopy 

    Font Teixidó, Josep; Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Thomson, Neil H.; Verdaguer, Albert; Chiesa, Matteo (2012-01-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    In dynamic atomic force microscopy (AFM) the cantilever is vibrated and its dynamics are monitored to probe the sample with nanoscale and atomic resolution. Amplitude and frequency modulation (AM and FM) atomic force ...
  • Subharmonic excitation in amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy in the presence of adsorbed water layers 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Verdaguer, Albert; Chiesa, Matteo (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-12-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    In ambient conditions, nanometric water layers form on hydrophilicsurfaces covering them and significantly changing their properties and characteristics. Here we report the excitation of subharmonics in amplitude modulation ...
