Title: Surface Magnetic Microstructure
Published: January 01, 1990
Abstract: The way in which a magnetic solid minimizes its energy through the formation of domains and domain walls is strongly influenced by the presence of the surface. At the surface, a bulk Blich wall may change into a Neel wall in order to reduce the magnetic stray field energy of teh ferromagnetic system. We present high spatial resolution images of surface magnetic microstructure obtained by scanning electron microscopy with polarization analysis (SEMPA).
