About this book

This research monograph presents the latest results related to the characterization of low dimensional systems. Low-angle polarized neutron scattering and X-ray scattering at grazing incidence are used as the two main techniques to explore various physical phenomena of these systems. Special focus is put on systems like thin film transition metal and rare-earth layers, oxide heterostructures, hybrid systems, self-assembled nanostructures and self-diffusion. 

Readers will gain in-depth knowledge about the usage of specular scattering and off-specular scattering techniques. Investigation of in-plane and out-of-plane structures and magnetism with vector magnetometric information is illustrated comprehensively. The book caters to a wide audience working in the field of nano-dimensional magnetic systems and the neutron and X-ray reflectometry community in particular.

About the authors

Dr. Paul is doing research at the neutron scattering department of the Technical University Munich. His focus is on fundamental and applied research on novel nanomaterials. He received his PhD from Indore University, India and spent his early postdoc phase collaborating with Nobel laureate Peter Grünberg in Jülich, Germany.

Amitesh Paul's work is addressing the fundamental details of interface magnetism, such as exchange bias, interlayer exchange coupling, magnetization reversal, anisotropic properties, as well as magneto-transport properties in layered materials and layered oxide heterostructures. His particular interest lies in layer resolved magnetization profiles and lateral magnetic correlations and domains, using polarized neutron scattering and grazing incidence x-ray and neutron scattering as the main techniques.
