Investigation of Magnetization Distribution in Co/Au Multilayer Film by Magnetic Force Microscopy
Results obtained during examination of the multilayer Co/Au film by different methods of Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM) are presented. It was shown, that double-pass scanning with MFM tips, characterised by strong magnetic moments resulted in a magnetisation reversal of the sample during MFM imaging. Single pass scanning or use of the MFM tips with low magnetic moments was required to minimise this process. Experimental results demonstrated good correlation between MFM results acquired during single-pass scanning and double-pass scanning with MFM tips characterised by low magnetic moment.
