Mn1.4PtSn is a half-Heusler compound with tetragonal crystal structure. Only recently, Lorentz transmission electron microscopy measurements have shown that, so-called antiskyrmion phases can be stabilized by applying a magnetic field to the material. Futhermore, it is known that non-trivial magnetic structures such as skyrmions cause a topological contribution to the Hall effect. Therefore, investigations of the electrical transport properties of the material are highly desirable. By using a focused ion beam, we are able to produce samples with submicron feature size, close to the coherence length of the occurring magnetic structures, while maintaining the high quality of a single crystal. This opens the possibility to measure influences of the sample geometry, such as local effects and finite-size effects, on the topological Hall effect caused by the antiskyrmions in Mn1.4PtSn.
