Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM): A method for observing local magnetic fields near a surface by scanning the surface with a magnetic probe which interaction with the magnetic domains on the surface results in a cantilever deflection. Such deflection is used to produce a data file or MFM image.

MFM principle: measurement of frequency shift df
