Adhesive surfaces are difficult to measure with contact AFM because a good adhesive glues the tip to the surface. This makes lateral movement (in xy-direction) impossible.

Alternativly, acrylates and other viscous polymers can be scanned with non-contact methods such as Tapping Mode. These modes reveal no information about adhesion properties. However, the adhesion determined in force-distance measurements can be correlated with tack. (Tack is defined as separation energy after a short periode of contact.) For this reason we operate the AFM in Pulsed Force Mode: The tip touches the surface for about 100 µs and indents it with Fmax and then it is pulled away. The minimal force that occures during the separation is recorded and is called PFM-adhesion.
