    Our purpose is to estimate the viscoelastic properties of polymeric surfaces in nanometer scale with atomic force microscopy (AFM). Particularly, we direct an attention to force-distance curve (force curve), whose profile gives qualitative information about the hardness of sample. But in this time, to investigate quantitative values of mechanical properties, we use the method analyzing force curves based on the JKR theory. Furthermore, we discuss the dependence of elastic modulus or adhesive energy of IIR on temperature, scan rate and indentation depth.
