The responsiveness and the strong restoring forces of polyelectrolyte brushes can be utilized to sense stresses on the microscale. Therefore, a polycationic brush was labeled with a fluorescent dye allowing to measure local pressures as low as 10 kPa from the mechano-response with a lateral resolution better than human skin (1 µm).

Applying a defined pressure with soft colloidal probe AFM, the fluorescence was observed with a confocal microscope. After calibration, the pressure distribution under bio-inspired microstructured adhesives in contact could be determined from the fluorescence of the polymer brush. The contact formation of the adhesives was controlled with a commercial setup (PVM-A, GeSiM).

Furthermore, the steric interactions of the polyelectrolyte brush were investigated. By force-mapping a pattern with brush-free areas, the separation on the polyelectrolyte brush could be defined without reaching the constant compliance regime.
