|Title:||Magnetic Microstructure of Thin Films and Surfaces: Exploiting Spin-polarized Electrons in the SEM and STM|
|Published:||January 01, 1989|
|Abstract:||Magnetic microstructure, that is the configuration of domains and domain walls in a magnetic material, is of both fundamental interest and of crucial importance for device applications. For example, the ultimate density of magnetic information storage is limited by the sharpness of a domain boundary. The magnetic microstructure of a thin film or surface depends on sensitively on its physical structure which is strongly affected by sample preparating or growth. High resolution magnetization imaging is necessary to determine the domain configuration that occurs for a particular sample preparation and the changes that take place under external perturbations such as applied magnetic field, stress or temperature.|
