Probing Magnetic Properties of Materials With In-Vacuum X-Ray Cameras

An international team from France, Italy, Slovenia and the UK have been investigating the microscopic magnetic properties of thin film ferromagnetic materials. By measuring time resolved x-ray magnetic scattering and x-ray diffraction, the researchers were able to determine the dynamic formation of magnetic domains in these materials…Find out more
