Low-temperature ultrahigh vacuum frequency-modulation atomic force microscopy (AFM) was performed using a 1 MHz length-extension type of quartz resonator as a force sensor. Taking advantage of the high stiffness of the resonator, the AFM was operated with an oscillation amplitude smaller than 100 pm, which is favorable for high spatial resolution, without snapping an AFM tip onto a sample surface. Atomically resolved imaging of the adatom structure on the Si(111)-(7×7) surface was successfully obtained.
