Force microscopy cantilevers locally heated in a fluid: temperature fields and effects on the dynamics

Abstract : Atomic force microscopy cantilevers are often, intentionally or not, heated at their extremity. We describe a model to compute the resulting temperature field in the cantilever and in the surrounding fluid on a wide temperature range. In air and for common geometries, the heat fluxes in the cantilever and to the environment are of comparable magnitude. We then infer how the fluid-structure interaction is modified due to heating, and predict the induced changes in the dynamics of the system. In particular, we describe how the resonance frequencies of the cantilever shift with a temperature increase due to two competing processes: softening of the cantilever, and decrease of the fluid inertial effects. Our models are illustrated by experiments on a set of cantilevers spanning the relevant geometries to explore the relative importance of both effects.
