Abstract

The spin order of the nickel oxide (001) surface is resolved, employing noncontact atomic force microscopy at 4.4 K using bulk Fe and SmCo tips mounted on a qPlus sensor that oscillates at sub-50 pm amplitudes. The spin-dependent signal is hardly detectable with Fe tips. In contrast, SmCo tips yield a height contrast of 1.35 pm for Ni ions with opposite spins. SmCo tips even show a small height ...
