The lateral force micoscope can provide information on frictional properties on surfaces down to the nanometer scale. Reproducible quantitative measurements require an accurate calibration of the mechanical response of cantilever. In this letter, we propose a fast and nondestructive method to determine the normal and lateral cantilever stiffness used to calculate the normal and frictional forces.
