Workshop "Magnetic Imaging"
Several magnetic imaging methods have been developed in recent years that offer unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution. Spin-Polarized Tunneling, e.g., allows insights into magnetism on an atomic length scale, whereas Kerr Microscopy has the potential to probe dynamic processes in the femtoseconds range. Furthermore, synchrotron methods enable element selective views of magnetic heterostructures.

This workshop will bring together scientist working in different fields of magnetic imaging and those interested in these methods and shall provide an inspiring overview on the possibilities of modern magnetic imaging.

Contributed papers to magnetic imaging and other related topics are welcome in the poster session.
