Abstract

In this study, the unique ability of AFM to visualize the nanoscale surface topography and to provide relative viscoelastic properties of the surface and immediate subsurface has been exploited. Lenses made from poly (methyl methacrylate) and polysiloxane derivatives were used. Throughout the study, etched silicon probes and J-type piezoelectric scanner were used.
