Lateral Force Microscopy(LFM) is a powerful technique for imaging nanoscale structures. Reliable quantitative data regarding the magnitude of the nanoscale friction force has been difficult to obtain. Existing calibration methods also suffer from flaws which restrict their usefulness, such as causing excessive tip wear. A new method was derived and tested extensively.
