The Atomic force microscope in non-contact mode of operation is modeled as a lumped parameter system. The interaction of the cantilever tip with the sample surface through the van der Waals force introduces the nonlinearity to the model. The model is analyzed by the method of multiple scales and the frequency response equation is obtained. The effects of the nonlinearity, amplitude of excitation, and damping coefficient on the frequency response are studied.
