We report the results of simulations of magnetic force microscope (MFM) contrast for low-coercive ferromagnetic and superparamagnetic nanoparticles. We show that two types of MFM contrast in the form of gaussian and ring distributions can be observed because of probe-particle interaction. We discuss stabilization of the magnetic moment of nanoparticles by an external magnetic field. We have calculated the values of stabilizing magnetic fields and their dependence on probe parameters and scanning heights.
