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 ...
