Due to a thinner magnetic coating layer, Low Moment Magnetic tips MFM_LM enable imaging of low coercitivity magnetic samples, such as iron garnet films with coercitivity of about 20 Oe. Using standard MFM tips leads to perturbation of the magnetic domain pattern and the tip induced local magnetisation reversal of the sample. Low moment MFM tips with reduced magnetic stray fields significantly reduce magnetisation reversal during imaging and improve quality of the MFM results. Special protective layers help to avoid oxidation and increase the cantilever lifetime substantially. The sharp silicon tip facilitates magnetic resolution in the range 20–30 nm.
