Spin-Resolved Photoemission Electron Microscopy

  • Keiki FukumotoEmail author


When the order of magnetic spins is locally different, it is the so-called magnetic domains. Domain structures can be randomly formed, or it can be also formed by the competition of magnetic energies such as magnetic dipole, exchange, anisotropy, and Zeeman energies.
