The current progress of magneto-optical techniques for direct investigations of magnetic flux structures in type-II superconductors with high spatial resolution is presented. Wide possibilities are offered by the high-resolution Faraday effect technique requiring a thin layer of EuSe as an indicator and the method using ferrimagnetic garnet films with in-plane anisotropy. The advantages of both methods are combined to investigate flux structures of an YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) thin film partly irradiated with 25 MeV oxygen ions and for inhomogeneously twinned YBCO single crystals.
