Abstract

Magnetic force microscopy is commonly understood as a scanning force microscopy technique that is devoted to the measurement of tip-sample forces mediated by a magnetic field. In fact, every scanning force microscope can be used as a magnetic force microscope, if a tip with a magnetic moment is used. Then the SFM becomes sensitive to magnetic fields emanating from the surface of a sample. However, other types of tips that are sensitive to magnetic fields may also be used. Examples are microfabricated Hall probes, magnetoresistive sensors, and superconductive quantum interference devices (SQUIDS).
