Magnetic resonance force microscopy (MRFM), which is used for the imaging of three-dimensional spatial distribution of resonant spins by mechanical force detection, is discussed. The greatest challenge in image reconstruction using MRFM is that the resonance occurs in a strongly curved shell that extends beyond the scan range. The iterative reconstruction in an electron spin resonance imaging experiment with 80 nm voxels is demonstrated. The reconstructed image correctly identifies the orientation and location of the surface, and maps the spin distribution within the solid.
