Abstract: While Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy is capable of imaging three dimensional structures on nanoscopic scales, the number of practical applications so far has been limited, partly due to the complexity of the device. In this thesis we introduce the Easy MRFM, a way to increase the usability of MRFM. By seperating all MRFM components from the sample, we hope to remove some of the drawbacks of the previous Oosterkamp MRFM, allowing for easier data analysis and sample exchange. This thesis provides the theoretical calculations for the optimal set-up of the Easy MRFM and a preliminary proof of concept. Furthermore it describes a new way to analyse the measurements of the cantilever properties which would be better suited for the Easy MRFM. It also It includes the characterization of a new cantilever which could possibly be used inside the Easy MRFM to increase its sensitivity.
