The exquisite sensitivity of magnetic resonance force microscopy (MRFM) was exploited and demonstrated a detection sensitivity equivalent to two spins in a 0.1 Hz measurement bandwidth. This represents nearly 2 orders of magnitude improvement over previous MRFM results. As such, the technique was applied to spin ensembles consisting of fewer than 102 electron spins and study statistical polarizations of order 10 spins.
