The taping mode Atomic Force Microscopic (T-AFM) can be properly described by a sinusoidal excitation of its base and nonlinear potential interaction with sample. Thus the cantilever may cause chaotic behavior which decreases the performance of the sample topography. In this paper a nonlinear delayed feedback control is proposed to control chaos in a single mode approximation of a T-AFM system. Assuming model parameters uncertainties, the first order Unstable Periodic Orbits (UPOs) of the system is stabilized using the sliding nonlinear delayed feedback control. The effectiveness of the presented methods is numerically verified and the results show the high performance of the controller.
