    The Anomalous Hall Effect (AHE) can be used to measure the magnetization reversal of individual nanomagnets, under varying field angle and wide temperature range [1]. By passing a current through the magnetic elements, and measuring the voltage generated perpendicular to the current direction, one can determine the component of magnetisation perpendicular to the film plane. This extremely sensitive method can be used to observe reversal of magnetic elements with diameters below 10 nm or individual elements inside large assemblies.
