Abstract:We analyze the dynamics of an atomic force microscopy (AFM) cantilever oscillating in liquid at subnanometer amplitude in the presence of tip-sample interaction. We present AFM measurements of oscillatory solvation forces for octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane on highly oriented pyrolitic graphite and compare them to a harmonic oscillator model that incorporates the effect of the finite driving force for a typical AFM configuration with acoustic driving. In contrast to the general belief, we find—in both experiments and modeling—that the tip-sample interaction gives rise to a pronounced signature in the phase at driving frequencies well below resonance.
