MFM high-resolution probes
Commercial magnetic force microscopy (MFM) probes have exhibited limited sensitivity and spatial resolution. Furthermore, there are no magnetic probes in the market that work properly in liquid environment. To overcome these complications we have developed new magnetic nanowires made of Co and Fe growth by Focused Electron Beam Induced Deposition onto nonmagnetic probes.
Regarding MFM images with NanoWire-tips in water, our MFM probes show optimal behaviour in liquids and potential application in studies of magnetic nanoparticles in liquid and physiological solutions among others.
