Description

This first focused treatment on a hot topic highlights fundamental aspects as well as technological applications arising from a fascinating area of condensed matter physics. The editors have excellent track records and, in light of the broadness of the topic, retain the focus on antiferromagnetic oxides.
They thus cover such topics as dichroism in x-ray absorption, non-magnetic substrates, exchange bias, ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic interface coupling and oxide multilayers, as well as imaging using soft x-ray microscopy.
The result is a very timely monograph for solid state physicists and chemists, materials scientists, electrical engineers, physicists in industry, physical laboratory technicians, and suppliers of sensors.
1) Introduction
2) Growth of antiferromagnetic oxide thin films
3) Dichroism in x-ray absorption for the study of antiferromagnetic materials
4) Antiferromagnetic oxide films on non-magnetic substrates
5) Exchange bias by antiferromagnetic oxides
6) Theory of ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic interface coupling
7) Antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic oxide multilayers: Fe3O4-based systems as a model
8) Micromagnetic structure: Imaging antiferromagnetic domains using soft x-ray microscopy

“No doubt a solid background in magnetism is required for a full understanding and appreciation of this excellent book, but it will be warmly welcomed by all researchers specialised in the field of functional magnetic materials.”  (Materials World, 1 May 2012)
