Abstract

The design and application of scanning probe microscope primarily intended for topographic, magnetic force and magneto-optical investigations of magnetic thin films is described. A microfabricated silicon tip is scanned across the sample of interest, and the tip deflection detected using a modified form of the den Boef twin beam interferometric system. Initial studies of the recorded bit structure in magnetic and magneto-optic storage media, and the magnetic field from a thin film recording head are reported.
