The investigation of magnetic properties of nanoscale objects like magnet molecules, nanoparticles, single electronic spin, is one of the most stimulating challenges of applied and basic research of the next years. Indeed, magnetic imaging is a powerful tool for probing biological, chemical and physical systems. In this framework, a growing interest has been devoted to nano-Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (nanoSQUIDs), because they exhibit an ultra-high magnetic moment sensitivity (few spin or Bohr magnetons) and allow direct magnetization changes in small spin systems. In this presentation, we will focus on nanoSQUID and its main applications ranging from nanomagnetism to quantum computing.
