Magnetic Domains: The Analysis of Magnetic Microstructures

Alex Hubert & Rudolf Schäfer, Springer, New York, 1998

The rich world of magnetic microstructure or magnetic domains – extending from the “nano-world” to visible dimensions – is systematically covered in this book. The subject, which might be called “mesomagnetism”, forms the link between atomic foundations and technical applications of magnetic materials, ranging from computer storage systems to the magnetic cores of electrical machinery. The structures and processes in the hidden inner world of magnets are also favourite examples in the theoretical analysis of complex systems. Independent of their scientific and technical relevance, magnetic microstructures are also esthetically appealing, and the authors could not resist this aspect of their work.

Magnetic Microscopy of Layered Structures

Wolfgang Kuch, Rudolf Schäfer, Peter Fischer & Franz Ulrich Hillebrecht, Springer, New York, 2015

This book presents the important analytical technique of magnetic microscopy. This method is applied to analyze layered structures with high resolution. This book presents a number of layer-resolving magnetic imaging techniques that have evolved recently. Many exciting new developments in magnetism rely on the ability to independently control the magnetization in two or more magnetic layers in micro- or nanostructures. This in turn requires techniques with the appropriate spatial resolution and magnetic sensitivity. The book begins with an introductory overview, explains then the principles of the various techniques and gives guidance to their use. Selected examples demonstrate the specific strengths of each method. Thus the book is a valuable resource for all scientists and practitioners investigating and applying magnetic layered structures.
