We carried out the surface mapping of the dynamic friction and the effective elastic stiffness of contact by using a quartz crystal resonator and an AFM cantilever, associated with the topographic image. The tip was scanned across the Au substrate on the resonator in the constant-height mode. A typical grain structure of the Au substrate in the dynamic friction and the effective stiffness images was observed, simultaneously with the topographical image. This technique enables us to observe the surface properties related to contact in the nanometer scale. [DOI: 10.1380/ejssnt.2015.164]
