In this paper, we present a method to choose operating parameters to minimize intrinsic error in a newly developed scanning probe microscope (SPM) modeling method. This modeling method uses the probe-sample interaction signal to develop a model for the SPM dynamics — it is noted that this is especially advantageous when sensor information is either unavailable or unreliable. Despite the method’s advantages, the choice of operating parameters affect the accuracy of the model. The main contribution of this paper is a complete error analysis of the modeling method and the application of multi-objective optimization to determine SPM operating parameters that minimize this error.
