Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) refers to a family of scanning probe techniques based on atomic force microscopy (AFM), which allow one to image the magnetic properties of the sample surface at the nanoscale, simultaneously to its topography. Here, we review the most widespread MFM techniques, mainly dynamic MFM although static MFM is also briefly described for the sake of completeness. We illustrate the working principles, the experimental setups, and the analytical models describing the MFM response, which are fundamental for understanding and quantitatively interpreting the contrast in MFM images. An overview is given of the application fields of MFM, which cover almost all the magnetic materials, from recording media to ferromagnetic materials, nanomaterials and nanoparticles, alone and in organic or biological systems. Finally, some advances, hot topics, new applications, and open issues are presented, including the effect of external magnetic fields, nonmagnetic interactions, MFM tips calibration and advanced probes, and magnetic imaging with variable temperature.

Abstract

Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) refers to a family of scanning probe techniques based on atomic force microscopy (AFM), which allow one to image the magnetic properties of the sample surface at the nanoscale, simultaneously to its topography. Here, we review the most widespread MFM techniques, mainly dynamic MFM although static MFM is also briefly described for the sake of completeness. We illustrate the working principles, the experimental setups, and the analytical models describing the MFM response, which are fundamental for understanding and quantitatively interpreting the contrast in MFM images. An overview is given of the application fields of MFM, which cover almost all the magnetic materials, from recording media to ferromagnetic materials, nanomaterials and nanoparticles, alone and in organic or biological systems. Finally, some advances, hot topics, new applications, and open issues are presented, including the effect of external magnetic fields, nonmagnetic interactions, MFM tips calibration and advanced probes, and magnetic imaging with variable temperature.
