The motivation for the work reported is portable NMR spectroscopy of liquids and solids with higher sensitivity than
inductive detection and without the need for tuned elements specific to the frequency of each isotope observed. The
fabrication and assembly of a BOOMERANG force-detected nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer is
reported. The design is optimal for samples of ~ 50 micron diameter and realizes tolerances of ~1 micron in the Si and
ferromagnetic parts. Optical lithography, electrodeposition, reactive ion etching, and release of the moving part by
solution etching are key methods used. Resistance to delamination of the ferromagnetic material was achieved by Cr/Au
deposition prior to electrodeposition of 85/15 Co:Ni.
