We fabricated the first Fe-coated fiber probe for magneto-optical applications. In order to improve the optical confinement capability, we used a double-layer structure, with a thin coating of Au. The double-layer structure consisted of 50-nm-thick Fe and 50-nm-thick Au. A probe-to-probe experiment confirmed that the fabricated fiber probe had an effective optical confinement capability for optical near-field measurement.
