Poster 35: Andrew Jue – Characterization of Quartz Tuning Forks for Quantitative Force Measurement Across Single Nanometer Gaps

Faculty mentor: Keunhan (Kay) Park

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is often used to measure interaction forces across nanoscale gaps. In our research, a miniaturized quartz tuning fork (QTF) is used to measure these forces by attaching a sharp tip at the end of one QTF prong. To quantitatively measure the interaction force with a QTF probe, the dynamic behaviors of the QTF are modeled and correlated with the measurement. This model allows us to extract the gap-dependent interaction forces within single nanometer vacuum gaps.
