The paper deals with harmonic balance analysis of tapping mode Atomic Force Microscopes. The separation-amplitude curve is analitically evaluated for a large class of common tip-sample interaction potentials. The proposed approach provides an useful insight of many nonlinear known phenomena with respect to fully numerical approaches.
