Paper Abstract

We report the vibration reduction in the optically driven V-shaped AFM cantilever with 70 nm gold surface coating. The driving laser at 780 nm is intensity modulated at 1 kHz to 100 kHz and focused on the AFM cantilever surface. The cantilever vibration amplitude is monitored by HeNe probe laser. Two features are observed: high vibration amplitude of the cantilever (1) at several kHz modulation frequencies regime and (2) at around its mechanical resonance. In addition, we found that vibration at the resonance peak increases when the excitation spot is positioned farther from the free end of the cantilever.
