Abstract

The atomic force microscope (AFM) offers a rich observation window on the nanoscale, yet many dynamic phenomena are too fast and too weak for direct detection, urging measurement innovation. Integrated cavity-optomechanics is revolutionizing micromechanical sensing, but its implementation in AFM remains challenging. Here, picogram-scale probes are integrated with photonic resonators, to enable
