Abstract

A novel scanning probe technique that is able to image surface magnetic and electric properties has been developed. It is based on the near-field microscopy of surface second-harmonic generation. We have demonstrated the capability of the technique by imaging the domain structure of a Ni single crystal and a piezoelectric ceramic.
