Atomically engineered materials with novel properties are created by sophisticated deposition techniques (e.g., MBE, PLD, ALD, sputtering). Thereby cognitive, spintronic and other “exotic” materials are explored and the subject of research. This concerns materials that, e.g., display unusual magnetic textures such as non-collinear magnetism and skyrmions, or materials that only exist at interfaces. Therefore, a correlation between magnetic phenomena and the crystal structures down to the nanometer-range is a necessity.
The one-day-symposium brings together scientists, who are working in different fields: magnetic materials, magnetic nanostructures, structure analysis. The main focus is directed towards techniques of transmission electron microscopy to analyze magnetic structures. This includes techniques of Lorentz microscopy, methods of holography, DPC, possibilities of in situ-microscopy even at low-temperatures.
All these aspects should be intensively discussed including future trends, new magnetic structures as well as new TEM concepts.
