We have demonstrated the capabilities of the scanning microwave microscopy (SMM) technique for measuring ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectra in nanometric areas of magnetic samples. The technique is evaluated using three different samples, including a yttrium iron garnet (YIG) polycrystalline bulk sample and a thick YIG film grown by liquid phase epitaxy (LPE). Patterned permalloy (Py) micromagnetic dots have been characterized to assess the performance for imaging applications of the technique, measuring the variation of the magnetic properties of the sample along its surface. The proposed technique may pave the way for the development of high spatially resolved mapping of magnetostatic modes in different nanomagnetic and micromagnetic structures.
