Here we describe a straightforward electrochemical method for fabricating sharp cobalt tips. Such tips are particularly useful for those scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) experiments where the focus is on magnetic properties of the surface and the spin polarized (SP) tunneling current is the relevant property, such as in SPSTM and SP scanning tunneling spectroscopy. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
