28 simplifies to Fapex ¼ pe0 V c Þ2 R ðV d ; ð3:29Þ which is the most common expression used to estimate electrostatic forces in AFM. 29 [57, 60]. 7 Nonconservative Forces The forces discussed in the previous sections are conservative; however, in many experiments it is rather common to find both conservative and nonconservative forces. Dissipation arises from a variety of processes that depend on both the material properties and the environment. For example, dissipation is involved in force induced atomic or molecular reorientations, interdigitation, and formation and rupture of liquid menisci, or whenever there is an exchange of atoms and molecules between the tip and the sample [61 65].

The relevant regime for most dynamic AFM experiments is the underdamped regime where 1/2Q < 1. 3 The Point Mass Model: Elemental Aspects a transient term and a steady motion,  a  z ¼ B exp t cos ðvr t bÞ þ Acos ðvt 2 wÞ; ð4:5Þ with a ¼ v0/Q. Initially, both motions are prominent; however, after a time 2Q/v0, the transient term is reduced by a factor 1/e. The steady motion is a sinusoidal function (harmonic) in a solution that oscillates with the excitation frequency v and has a phase lag with respect to the excitation force.

That is an unusually long period for one of the instruments that epitomizes the emergence of nanotechnology. There are two seemingly opposed reasons to explain this anomaly. First, the images provided by the microscope were so impressive and they came so soon after the invention of the technique that it conveyed the impression that the physical principles governing the operation of the instrument were already mastered. Second, it turned out that the dynamics of cantilever tip ensemble was rather complicated.
