Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) allows detection of stray magnetic fields around magnetic materials and the two-dimensional visualization of these fields. This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the oscillations of an MFM tip above a thin film of nonmagnetic metal. The results show good agreement with experimental data obtained by varying the tip height. The phenomenon analyzed here can be applied as a "metal detector" at the nanometer scale and for contactless measurement of sheet… Expand

The Observation of Interface Effects Presented on Micrometer-Scale Sphere Tips of Fiber Bragg Grating-Based Probes
TLDR
Experimental and numerical results unambiguously reveal that probes with micrometer-sized tips are more easily influenced by interface interaction, and forces show varying magnitudes, action ranges, and prioritized contributions, compared with nano-sized probe tips. Expand
