Abstract

A low temperature magnetic force microscope has been applied to spatially resolve single vortices in an epitaxially grown YBa2Cu3O7 thin film at 77 K. A disordered vortex arrangement is observed. Further the magnetic stray field of the magnetic force microscope tip is used to locally nucleate vortex bundles.
