A magnetic force scanning tunneling microscopy technique for imaging of magnetization patterns is briefly described and a ‘‘point‐charge model’’ for this technique is stated. This model is experimentally tested by comparing the measured images of some deliberately recorded magnetization patterns with the images theoretically computed for the same patterns on the basis of the point‐charge model. The good agreement between experimentally measured and theoretically computed images is found. This agreement suggests the validity of the point‐charge model.
