The versatility of a room-temperature scanning Hall probe microscope system with an integrated minicoil capable of generating pulsed magnetic fields up to 2.9 T was demonstrated by imaging magnetic structures on the surface of 1.4-MB floppy disks and demagnetized strontium ferrite permanent magnets. Vibration isolation between the sample and minicoil was achieved by using a combination of quartz glass plates and silicone gel layers and enabled extremely fast measurements under fields as high as 2.9 T, without detrimental effects on a GaAs-AlGaAs micro-Hall probe sensor located at a height of 0.5 mum above-the sample surface.
