The domain structures in NiFe elements were studied by magnetic force microscopy measurement and micromagnetic modeling. The remanent states in the elements were dependent on the direction of the saturation field. The "S" and "U" states were observed at remanence by applying the saturation field at different directions. The "S" and "U" states are metastable: magnetic force microscopy tip field-induced switching from the "S" and "U" states to the flux closure configuration was observed.
