Local magnetic properties of composition-spread Nd1-xSr xMnO3 (NSMO; x = 0.4-0.6) films were surveyed by a scanning SQUID microscope under irradiation. We have found that the spontaneous magnetization of the FM phase is significantly enhanced by the laser irradiation (λ = 532 nm), while the phase boundary is essentially unchanged.
