Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(Color online) (a) A schematic showing the conventional SPM and the parametric resonance unit required to implement parametric resonance in SPM. (b) Comparison of the frequency response of conventional (solid squares) vs parametric resonance (solid dots). The magnitude of conventional excitation has been adjusted so that the cantilever amplitude at resonance is comparable to that obtained with parametric resonance. For the case of parametric resonance (solid dots), the actual excitation frequency is twice the frequency at which each data point is plotted, (c) The instability tongue in the feedback gain-excitation frequency domain. The experimental data are in circles, while the solid line is the theoretical prediction using Eq. (3) and using a measured factor of 522. The instability region corresponds to gain and frequency combinations that lead to self-sustained parametric oscillations.

(Color online) (a) Image of a silicon grating (see inset for details), and (b) image of a DNA strand on mica (image size ) taken with the parametrically excited microcantilever.
