In a recently submitted paper, a technique is presented for the force calibration of atomic force microscopy (AFM) cantilevers under heavy fluid loading conditions, such as those commonly found in liquid environments. A Matlab program had been made available that automates this technique. In this paper, the analysis performed by this program is explained with specific attention to the details that do not appear in the original description of the calibration technique, but arise in the automated implementation.
