xrays & magnetism

The interactions of x-rays with magnetic materials, my present topic of research, are discussed in detail in a book I have written with Hans Christoph Siegmann.

The book is a comprehensive treatment of different aspects of the broad field of magnetism. It covers historical aspects, fundamental aspects all the way to state-of-the-art problems and research in contemporary magnetism. It particularly distinguishes itself from other books on “magnetism” in its treatment of spin polarized electron physics, the discussion of spin polarized transport and the novel technique of x-ray dichroism for the study of magnetic materials.
