Adaptations of scanning probe microscopy techniques can be used in conjunction with electron spin resonance for surfaces containing isolated paramagnetic spin centers. Scanning the tip over such a surface in the presence of a magnetic field produces reproducible. spatially localized signals. Possible mechanisms explaining this behavior are discussed. The detection of magnetic resonance by atomic force microscopy is also considered. including problems that have had to be overcome and experimental details.
