Static and dynamic response of the cantilever to increases in temperature. The dynamic response of the 9th flexural resonance mode and static response of the cantilever could be seen to closely track any changes in temperature over time. Here, two 0.5°C increases in temperature resulted in ~170 nm deflections in static mode (noise ±15 nm) and frequency shifts of ~75 Hz in dynamic mode (noise ±20 Hz). The insert shows the averaged absolute frequency shift of the tracked flexural resonance modes 8, 9 and 10. The errors of the averaged frequency shifts were as large as the symbols.
