Scanning superconducting quantum interference device microscopy (SSM) is a scanning probe technique that images local magnetic flux, which allows for mapping of magnetic fields with high field and spatial accuracy. Many studies involving SSM have been published in the last few decades, using SSM to make qualitative statements about magnetism. However, quantitative analysis using SSM has received less attention. In this work, we discuss several aspects of interpreting SSM images and methods to…

Magnetic imaging and statistical analysis of the metamagnetic phase transition of FeRh with electron spins in diamond
Magnetic imaging based on nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond has emerged as a powerful tool for probing magnetic phenomena in fields ranging from biology to physics. A key strength of NV
SQUIDs, fits and other magnetic bits
Magnetism is a property of matter that has been known for thousands of years, yet we have only just begun to understand it. These days, magnets can be found in many everyday applications such as MRI
SQUID-on-tip with single-electron spin sensitivity for high-field and ultra-low temperature nanomagnetic imaging.
The results show that the easy magnetization axis direction undergoes a transition from the 111 direction at room temperature to an in-plane orientation, which could be attributed to the Verwey phase transition in Fe3O4.
Micromagnetic Tomography for Paleomagnetism and Rock‐Magnetism
Our understanding of the past behavior of the geomagnetic field arises from magnetic signals stored in geological materials, e.g., (volcanic) rocks. Bulk rock samples, however, often contain magnetic
Sequential Bayesian experiment design for optically detected magnetic resonance of nitrogen-vacancy centers.
This work compares conventional NV- center photoluminescence measurements that use pre-determined sweeps of the microwave frequency with measurements using a Bayesian inference methodology and observes an order of magnitude decrease in the NV- magnetometry measurement time necessary to achieve a set precision.
Granular Hall Sensors for Scanning Probe Microscopy
This work shows how nanogranular ferromagnetic Hall devices fabricated by the direct-write method of focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID) can be tailor-made for any given probe geometry and demonstrates how the magnetic stray field sensitivity can be optimized in situ directly after direct- write nanofabrication of the sensor element.

Magnetic microscopy using SQUIDs
SQUID-based magnetic microscopy involves scanning a sample closely past a low-noise SQUID. With the SQUID held in a flux-locked loop, a computer records the feedback output as a function of sample
Nanoscale imaging magnetometry with diamond spins under ambient conditions
This work shows how magneto-optical spin detection can be used to determine the location of a spin associated with a single nitrogen-vacancy centre in diamond with nanometre resolution under ambient conditions, and demonstrates the use of a single diamond spin as a scanning probe magnetometer to map nanoscale magnetic field variations.
