PURPOSE:To provide a measuring technology for interatomic microscope in which the irregular sample can be separated well from the frictional force. SOLUTION :An oscillating force applied laterally relatively between a sample 8 and a probe 4 Is provided. The sample 8 tilted laterally to excite bending orthogonal oscillation. The phase and the amplitude of the oscillation of the cantilever are detected.
