Magnetic Force Microscopy


Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) is scanning probe technique which enables the analysis of magnetic properties of the samples at the nanoscale using a microfabricated tip coated with a magnetic layer. In this chapter, we describe MFM and give an overview of its applications, ranging from well established to advanced new applications.
