Abstract

Scanning force microscopy is used in studies of the surface morphology and surface mechanical properties of polymeric solids. Several examples are presented to illustrate that SFM is a powerful and promising tool for investigations, such as, polyethylene single crystal, polymer blend thin films and polymerized organosilane monolayers. The imaging of nano-mechanical properties, such as, lateral force and elastic modulus of phase-separated polymer surfaces by SFM is presented. The application of SFM to the quantitative evaluation of surface viscoelasticity is also summarized.
