Based on the same MOKE principle, Kerr microscopy is an optical technique for magnetic imaging.

Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM)
Based on the scanning probe microscopy technique, a magnetized tip is scanned over the surface of interest to obtain magnetic in addition to topological contrast.
MFM at the Istituto dei Materiali per l’Elettronica ed il Magnetismo, Parma, IT (IMEM-CNR)
