1c. The microsurface roughness of asperities was extremely large for fig. 1b due to the different processing conditions. The distance between adjacent peaks was constant in fig. 1 and was about 240 nm for each asperity array, which was determined from the milling conditions. In fig. 2, the ratio of mound width to total width of mound and groove was varied by varying the spacing between the grooves. The depth of the grooves was relatively constant and was 20–27 nm. 3 AFM images of periodic arrays of platinum asperities fabricated on a silicon plate.

7 µm2 from the image. (a) Side view, (b) flat square of the scanning probe. 7 Force–curve technique used to determine the pull-off force. The force is calculated using the distance H and the spring constant of the cantilever. 20 × 10–9 Sliding conditions External normal load (nN) Raster scan area (µm2) Sliding speed (µm/s) Relative humidity (%) ∼5 (0 to 10) 2×2 2 20–56 examining the difference in the pull-off force between the patterns, first we scanned an area of 20 × 20 µm2 including some patterns.

15 shows AFM images of the sputtered pattern of the platinum asperities. The patterns shown in figs. 3b changed to figs. 15b, respectively. As the height of the asperity decreases, the small irregular ridges completely disappear in fig. 15. 15 AFM images of platinum asperity arrays after sputtering. The shape of platinum asperity arrays shown in fig. 3 changed after removing the unreacted material. The height of the asperity decreased and the asperity peaks became flat. 2-nm asperity height. 16a shows the no-scan pull-off force on the sputtered platinum patterns (fig.
