However, the difficulties in attaching in a reliable and efficient manner carbon nanotubes to a Si cantilever have greatly limited its impact on AFM. Molecular resolution images in amplitude modulation AFM have been obtained either by using oxide sharpened silicon nitride tips [33] or by using sharp carbon whiskers grown by chemical vapor deposition on top of regular Si tips [30]. The tip’s geometry might also be the source of several imaging artifacts. Etched Si tips are asymmetrical. The tip’s angle depends on the scanning direction.

B) Rectangular cross section of a rectangular beam. (c) One dimensional representation of a cantilever tip beam. (d) Point mass model representation of the cantilever tip surface interface. The arrow over kts indicates a “nonlinear” spring. 3 The Point Mass Model: Elemental Aspects introduce a partial differential equation for the cantilever tip system. In fact, the equation is a modified Euler Bernoulli beam equation with the introduction of some dissipative elements and the tip surface force, EI   q4 qw q2 wðx; tÞ qw wðx; tÞ þ a ¼ a0 þ rWh þ dðx LÞ½Fexc ðx; tÞ þ Fts ðdފ: 1 qx4 qt qt2 qt ð4:1Þ Here, w(x,t) is the displacement of the cantilever beam perpendicular to its main axis; E, r, and I are the Young modulus, mass density, and area moment of inertia, respectively; L, W, and h are the length, width, and thickness of the cantilever, respectively; a0, a1 are, respectively, the external and internal damping coefficients; Fexc(x,t) is the excitation force; and Fts represents all the tip surface interaction forces.

48]. 1 Thermal Noise Method This method was first proposed by Hutter and Bechhoefer [42] and later refined by Butt and Jaschke [6]. It is based on the equipartition theorem that states that in thermal equilibrium the average value of each quadratic term in the Hamiltonian is given by kBT/2. For a free cantilever at equilibrium with the environment, 1 2 1 ð2:10Þ k z ¼ kB T; 2 2 where z2 is the mean square deflection of the cantilever caused by thermal vibrations. The deflection includes contributions from all the eigenmodes.
