Paper Abstract

We discuss recent experiments investigating the effects produced by laser irradiation of cantilevers utilized as force sensors in atomic force microscopy (AFM). Thermal and pressure effects are observed for cantilevers freely moving in air. Mechanical fluctuations of the cantilevers due to thermal noise of the environment have also been measured.
