Within this work we show the effect of local laser heating on the resonance frequency of microcantilever structures. This effect strongly depends on the mode shape, and we can recover perfectly well the behaviour via numerical simulations. Our research might have a strong impact in the field of nanomechanical sensing with resonant cantilevers. Read the whole article
