Hembacher, Stefan and Giessibl, Franz J. and Mannhart, Jochen (2002) Evaluation of a force sensor based on a quartz tuning fork for operation at low temperatures and ultrahigh vacuum. Applied Surface Science 188 (3-4), pp. 445-449.
The noise performance of the force sensor is crucial for optimizing the resolution in non-contact atomic force microscopy. Sensing forces in vacuum and low temperatures is even more demanding than at ambient conditions. Here we analyze the noise performance and the sensitivity of a force sensor based on a quartz tuning fork of which one of the prongs is fixed (qPlus sensor). The noise ...
